Need Flowers For A Science Fair Project?
My daughter has a science experiment she has to do and she and I want to tint a white flower. I used to do this as a kid with daisys. Since there are no daisys around I thought we could use any white flower, but it's not working. Is there a secret anybody knows about that you can give me? I'd really appreciate it.
Thanks in advance.
Fresh cut daisy-type spray chrysanthemums should be readily available from a local florist.Â The experiment should also work with carnations, either the standard or the spray type.Â In any case, choose blossoms which are not fully open or mature. Leave out of water for an hour to so. Then, cut about 2" off the bottom of the stem, using a sharp knife and cutting on a slant. Place the freshly cut stem into a vase of lukewarm water containing the dyeing agent -- such as food coloring. Color should show up in the petals of the flower within 2 or 3 days, maybe sooner.Â Hope this helps
