How You Can Change The Coloring Of Cut Flowers


To change white carnation-type petals to green, stand the

long-stemmed flowers in water containing a green aniline dye.

Other suitable aniline dyes may be used to achieve colored

stripes on white flowers.

Place flowers over a basin of water which contains a very small

amount of ammonia in a bell glass. The petals will usually

change. For example, many violet-colored petals will change to

green; red colors will become green, white will turn yellow and

dark carmine will turn black.



Violet-colored asters can be moistened with a very mild solution

of nitric acid. The ray florets will turn red and will also

acquire a pleasant scent.
