Real Science and Other Adventures

What colour would you like your celery? Videos!

Did you try out our experiment with celery and food dye?

Here are some other ways to experiment with food colouring and plants. I like the red cauliflower.





Water travels up the plant and is lost through the leaves. This is called transpiration.

The water travels through tiny tubes in the stem called xylem. The xylem in our celery was coloured by the food dye.
