The power of oxidation

Someone please correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe it’s because when the solution hits the bottom of the flask and "scatters", it allows for much more oxygen molecules to come into contact with it. When it’s still in the column pouring down, there’s still a relatively small percentage of the solution that contacts the air, probably not enough contact to incur the color change.
