It's simple absorption. The plant absorbs the water, and thus the food coloring in it. If you kept your hand in a bucket of water that had food coloring, your hand would be tinted when you pull it out (after keeping it in there for a while). Your tongue changes color when you suck on an ice pop. Absorption baby, it's a beautiful thing!
