We took a few shot glasses and filled one with tap water [Before pic right], one with salt and water [left] and the third with sugar and water [middle]. By nightfall, the salt water flowers were just about dead and wilted (Frankie informed me Dandelions sleep at night). The next morning the salt water and sugar water dandelions looked nearly dead. The ones in tap water were ok. Not sleeping. We tried to rescue the others by placing them in the tap water glass but the results shown below look like we had some success with the sugar water Dandelions, but the salt ones were still "sleeping" [After pic droopy dead ones are from the salt water].
We try to get Frankie to explore her world through experimentation. Don't know if it's working, but she's having fun lately.
