Suck It Up: Capillary Action of Water in Plants
AbstractHave you ever heard someone say, "that plant is thirsty" or "give that plant a drink of water"? We know that plants, and even bouquets of cut flowers, need water to survive, but have you ever thought about how the water moves within the plant? In this science project, you will use colored water and carnations to figure out where the water goes.
Use food dyes to follow the path of water through a carnation.
