When you put a red hot ball of nickel on floral foam something amazing happens

Floral foam is a great material for keeping flowers fresh and in place, but it also produces a spectacular chemical reaction as one YouTuber discovered



Floral foam is a great material for keeping flowers fresh and in place - but it also has a rather spectacular chemical reaction with a ball of nickel as one intrepid researcher discovered.
The man, known as Jonathan, placed a red hot metal ball on the top of the green substance and filmed what happened.
Instead of melting through, the ball stays on the top of the foam while it shrinks and turns grey beneath it.
A strange crackling noise fills the air and Jonathan breaks apart the floral foam to reveal the middle is burning merrily.
A YouTuber, who disobeyed the instructions not to try this at home, said: "I just tried this, and it is awesome to watch, but it smells pretty bad.

"I set a cup of water on top of the foam while it was burning, and it boiled in about 5 minutes, so it produces a hell of a lot of heat. I had a block about 4.5 inches high by 2.5 inches wide, and it burned for 26 minutes."
But those tempted to try it at home should be warned floral foam burning should be warned.
It contains toxic elements, including formaldehyde, barium sulphates and carbon black, which can cause cancer.
