“What if” questions often lead us to wild science adventures. (Admittedly, my definition of “wild” changed slightly since I had kids). So recently when we successfully extracted chlorophyll from maple leaves (read about it here), the natural “what if” question that floated to my mind was “what if we take the extracted chlorophyll and put it back into the plant?” “Would the white flowers turn green, if we stick them into extracted chlorophyll?” In other words, can we use chlorophyll as a coloring agent?
