Is a green leaf really green?! "Leaves have a green pigment called chlorophyll that they use to capture sunlight. But did you know that leaves also have pigments of other colors to capture colors of light that chlorophyll misses?"  How many colors are in a green leaf?"- TLC

To find out how many colors are in a green leaf, visit TLC and Herbarium for full tutorials that explain two different ways to extract the color from a leaf!
