The way it works is that if you place a blue vial, you must then place an orange one 3 after. You also need to put a clear vial straight after an orange one. This means the pattern must be. Blue, X, X, Orange, Clear. With this in mind you will be able to complete this pattern twice.

The final combo should be this.

  1. blue
  2. green
  3. blue
  4. orange
  5. clear
  6. orange
  7. clear
