Plants Traveling

“The Private Life of Plants: Traveling” was a useful documentary to help clarify my understanding on how plants manage to spread their seeds and germinate. I enjoyed watching the different time lapses for the species of plants and it helped me to see exactly what happens rather than reading it in a book or seeing a simple picture. I was amazed at all the different mechanisms plants used to travel around and not stick to just one area. I did not expect the pointy spines of plants to allow them to grip...

Cloning Plants

reproduction. Cuttings are taken from a mother plant in vegatative growth, and rooted in hydroponic medium to be grown as a separate plant. The offspring will be plants that are identical to the parent plant. Cloning preserves the character of your favorite plant.

Green Plants

Green plants absorb light energy using chlorophyll in their leaves. They use it to react carbon dioxide with water to make a sugar called glucose. The glucose is used in respiration, or converted into starch and stored. Oxygen is produced as a by-product. This process is called photosynthesis. Temperature, carbon dioxide concentration and light intensity are factors that can limit the rate of photosynthesis. Plants also need mineral ions, including nitrate and magnesium, for healthy growth. They...

Useful Plants

Role of mycorrhizas in the mineral nutrition of host plants Mycorrhizas are very important in the uptake of nutrients such as P, N, K, Cu, Zn and Ca by plants especially in soils low in these nutrients. Since P is the most limiting nutrient in tropical soils, mycorrhizas are vital for improving P nutrition particularly for cultivated plants. External hyphae can absorb and translocate P to the host from soil outside the root depletion zone. The thin mycorrhizal hyphae (2-4 μm in diameter) are able...

People and Plants

between plants and people is made possible by the differences between cellular respiration and photosynthesis. While cellular respiration occurs in all living organisms, photosynthesis relies on chlorophyll and is unique to plants, algae, and some bacteria. Respiration and photosynthesis are essentially the same process in reverse. During photosynthesis CO2 and H2O are converted to glucose and oxygen, while cellular respiration uses glucose and oxygen which are converted to CO2 and H20. Plants utilize...

Does Aspirin Effect Plants

Does Aspirin Effect Plant Growth Plant Science The question of this science fair project question is “Does Aspirin Effect Plant Growth.” This is a good question because aspirin help human get better but, will it help plant grow bigger. Or maybe it makes the plant grow faster? Or maybe it can make the plant not grow at all. In this science experiment I am using dieffenbachia plants. Dieffenbachia plants are usually house plants. This is great because this science experiment is being done in the...
