Thank You, Xylem (Sigyn Speaks)

The human female’s students have been studying Angiosperms, which is just a fancy word for flowering plants. I like this week of lab, not just because I just adore flowering plants, but also because there are always leftovers.

Look, Loki!  Today, it’s carnations.  I bet you’re wondering about the colored water.

The carnations started out plain white.  If you put them in colored water, the flowers will take it up, and it will travel upwards in little tubes called xylem

…and the dye gets deposited in the petals, leaving a lovely, stripey place to have a little sit!

Loki, shall I ask the human female if there are any more plain white carnations left?  I hear this works just as well with green food coloring!
