Coloured plants with a twist!



I remember when I was only 5 or 6, one of the science experiments we performed was we submerged celery into coloured water and watched as the water slowly changed the colour of the capillaries. Being so young at the time it blew my mind as I watched a stick of celery "drink". It was small experiments like these that allowed my curiosity in science to grow. Today's post comes courtesy of a YouTube poster, NurdRage. While this experiment is still safe to perform with young audiences, the resulting carnations can be used in various different settings to provide ambience. Either way NurdRage has some great videos, from glow in the dark carnations to a DIY 100' glow stick. Go check out his videos!
