Rainbow Colored Flowers

I already knew that you can transform white flowers in pretty much any color you like by adding 20 to 30 drops of ink or food coloring of your choice to their water. By doing so, in a matter of hours you will slowly but surely see their petals turn from white to the desired shade.

There is really nothing to it, but the other day our oldest daughter came home with this rainbow colored rose.

She mentioned she got it from a lady who had an entire bouquet of them. I was intrigued. How on earth was it possible to achieve such a strange effect? I had to know more about that.

It didn't take me long to find out there is a very simple trick to that. What you do is after you cut the end of the flower's stem, you cut the stem upwards in several different slits. Put each part in a different color and let nature do the rest.

Make sure to use warm water and also ensure there is a slanted cut at the bottom of the stem. This allows for a better absorption of both the water and the color.

You can really artistic with it. After letting the white flower soak in a batch of colored water, transfer it to another color. You can do this as long as the petals still show their original white color. Can you imagine the gorgeous outcome of doing this?

I can't yet, but I intend to find out soon!
