How Plants Drink

Sunday, August 5th, 2012

1. What Did We Use?

celery, glass of water, red food coloring.

2. What Did We Do?

We put the celery in the glass of water and put two drops of red food coloring in.

3. What Happened?

We checked 8 hours later and color did not get to the thin upper part of the celery. Bottom of the celery stalk has color.

4. What Did We Learn?

The experiment does not work with old celery! We will try again.
