Guess What Color My Hydrangeas Are Now?

So here’s an update on my hydrangeas.  They’ve changed color!

Oh yes, they have.  I kid you not.  They’ve turned from white to mauve now, a pale purplish hue…

And all I did was to implant 3 nails into the soil, and watered the plant twice a day…and then I let the magic happen…

After 2 days, I noticed a slight tinge of color on the petals, but I thought my eyes were playing a trick on me.  Then on the 3rd day, it was most certainly purple.  My son confirmed it to be true.

Here’s another close-up shot…

I think I’ll try adding a few more nails to see if the color will saturate a little :)

    Woah..this is cool, esp for a flower nerd like me. Can change colours due to acidity…I am going to get myself a pot of hydrangeas!

    The Giddy Tigress says: I’m also a flower nerd.. hehe…I spot some new sprouts coming soon, so we’ll see what color those get! :)

    A long time ago, my parents tried soap water on their hydrangeas and they changed colour too :)

    The Giddy Tigress says: Oh yeah…? So soap water raises the pH level of the soil….therefore the hydrangeas turned pink??!! :)
