Science - Water transportation investigation

As part of our biology lesson about plants, we designed and set up an investigation to find out if temperature effects the speed of the transportation of water in plants.

Making sure our test was fair, we measured out water and blue food colouring equally in 3 containers, then placed a white flower in each and located them in 3 different places at different temperatures. It was exciting observing them every 1/2 hour to check for any changes in the petals, which would indicate speedy transportation.

Can you spot which location resulted in the fastest transportation of water?
