Colour Changing Flowers

Did you know you can change the colour of white flowers by placing them in a pot of food colouring and water? 

This investigation is great for learning about how water is transported through plants. 


You will need 

White flowers 

Food colouring 


Small jars/ bottles 



Trim the flowers at the stalks so that they fit into the jars without falling over. 

Fill the jars/ bottles with water and add a little food colouring. If you are using more than one colour, make sure you use separate jars. 

Place the flowers into the jar and leave for a few hours.
