  • Add approximately 20-40 drops of food coloring for every 2 cups (500 ml) of water in the vase. The amount of food coloring to add depends on the hue you're trying to achieve. For a subtle, subdued color, add about 20 drops. For deeper, more vibrant color, add more food coloring.

  • Collect the flowers with all the stems pointing downward. Cut off the bottom 2 inches (5.08 cm) of all of the stems diagonally using sharp scissors so that the bottom tips of the flower stems will be pointed.

    Place the flowers into the vase of colored water, stems first.
  • Place the vase full of flowers in a cool place and allow them to sit undisturbed for approximately 24 hours. During this time, the veins in the flower stems will suck the colored water from the bottom of the stems all the way to the tips of the flower petals.
