Science: Colored Celery

Posted by

Here's a pretty common science experiment. Cut one end off a stalk of celery, and stick the cut end in colored water.

We used A LOT blue food coloring. I wanted to make sure the color would show up.

Leave the celery alone for 24 hours. And then check out what happens!

Ta-da! Blue celery!

I checked the celery after a couple hours, and I could already see a blue tinge. The blue was much darker by the next day.

I have to admit, I have a hard time explaining science experiments to a four-year-old. But this one's good for showing how a plant sucks water up through the stem and leaves.

  1. It is equally fun to do that with white carnations and make them different colors. Love your blog title!
