HowTo: Grow Psychadelic Roses

Admittedly rainbow dyed roses are pretty tacky, but the idea of "mutation" is cool. And the HowTo behind it seems simple enough. Pick Chur explains:

"In 2004, two dutch companies, River Flowers and F.J. Zandbergen, experimented and successfully grew a rose that had its petals rainbow colored. As petals get their nourishment through stem, the idea is to split the stem into several channels and dip each one in a different colored water. This way all the colors will be drawn by the stem into petals and resultant rose will have all the colors in it."

they look nice.

on a similar note: if a plant can carry coloured water to its leaves....a plant surly can carry pesticides to its leaves/fruit also that's pretty scary if you cannot afford organic food.

what doesn't KILL you makes you stronger.... :-P

the title is misleading. they are not grown multicolored. they get that way after cutting.

@ Paul, you are right they do get that wy only after cutting, they are not actually grown multi colored

LOL..@Paul...culdn't figure "THAT" one out on my own...thank-you for the enlightenment there buddy :)

it look good and it must have been hard to grow but any way it is amazing

i hate roses but this one is cool!!!!!!

what color were the roses originally? and what was used to color the water, food coloring? a step by step process would help this article...

Just like carnations. Same process, splice it and use food coloring to each section of the splice, using white roses.
