I buy this tiny little bottle of food colouring for 70c and that does about
three spray containers (i.e around 18 litres), so you don't need much.  I'd
say use a bit of trial and error.  I don't think the bottle is even 100ml.
Will try to go out to the truck and check to see how big the bottles are.
If I remember. <grin>

Another comment as to why the blue not the red...... on plants the blue
fades to green, whereas the red stays red/pink when the plant dies.  Dead
plants that have a vague blue tinge are much better than dead plants that
are bright red/pink.  But the tinge really is vague blue, almost unnoticeable.
