Tie-Dye Rose – Really?

rainbow roseNo need to adjust your screens, everyone – this rose is real. Well, it didn’t grow this way, but according to Pinterest and fine sites like Free People Blog, you can create rainbow tie-dye roses by splitting the stem of a cut flower and putting each tip into a different cup of tinted water.

Reader Kat tried it out and wrote about it on How To, How Hard, and How Much. She set everything up according to the directions, and even had the foresight to cat-proof the area before letting it sit overnight!  So, what happened?

Umm… nothing.

Well, she set up a few flowers in a single color without cutting the stems just to see if those would change, and they did. Sort of.
