    Your flowers are beautiful! We’ve never used gerbera daisies before, only carnations and regular daisies and we’ve never had luck with blue. It always seemed to wilt the flower.

    • Oh, that’s really interesting to hear that blue didn’t work for you. It was the first colour to show up for ours. I’m hoping to do this experiment again with a few different types of white flowers to see which one works best. (Just waiting to come across a mixed bunch on sale!)

        We used white roses and they really absorbed well. We even split the stems of one rose and put it in different colors to make a multicolor rose. Quite beautiful!

    This is a fun experiment. I’ve done this experiment before. Using flowers, water, and food coloring, a fun experiment for kids can unfolds!

    • Thanks, we enjoyed it so much we’ve done a few variations, with a few different flower types since. Do you mind if I ask, what type of flowers did you use? How did it go?

      • I tried it on a white Dahlia and I’ll have to say it really well.

        • Thanks Tasmiya, I’m so glad you liked it! I hadn’t thought of trying it on Dahlias before – I’ll have to try that next!
