I often see colored plants in flower shops.
This orchid is doomed. It is colored by the method of watering with a chemical substance and pricking into the stem of the plant. So the white flowers turned blue.

Painted cacti and succulents.

Sellers can convince you that painting is not harmful. They are lying. Lie, because the truth will prevent sales. Any coloring is detrimental to the plant: its capillaries are clogged and the plant does not breathe.
I'm very sorry for these plants. Because they are alive for me. I'm sure they get stressed out.

And these are the flowers in the bouquet.

These roses are stained with injections during growth. Then cut and sold. Personally for me it is ugly and devoid of natural harmony.

But that does not mean that I'm right. Everyone decides for himself. If it is sold, then there are buyers.
How do you think, could you buy such a plant?

I hate those with a vengeance. The orchids will revert to their own natural beauty after waterings, but those colours are really horrible.

I also hate painted heathers - green, red, silver and all those horrible colours.

I have had confetti sticking to kalanchoe half a year after it being purchased for me as a gift. I feel sorry for those who have to spray all this rubbish onto the plants,... think about the smells and chemical foul air they have to put up with..
