Plants and Plant Organs

Plants and Plant Organs
By Adriaan Berger
What are all the plant
One of the main plant organs is the stem. It holds the plant upright. It kind of acts like
the skeletal system in a animals body. It also acts like the circulatory system getting
ingredients for photosynthesis around the plant.
Another main organ is the roots. They suck minerals, nutrients and water to the to be
transported to the leaves. It also hooks the plant onto the ground so that the winds
don’t rip it out.
The main organ of a plant that acts as a kitchen are the leaves. This is where
photosynthesis happens. All the nutrients that got transported from the roots go here. It
also collects CO2 from the air. After all that happens, O2 is released in the air. They
also collect sunlight.
The last main organ is the flower. It’s the plant’s main reproduction system. If the plant
doesn’t have flowers then it uses fruits or vegetables. If it doesn’t have any it just
launches the seed away in some way. It reproduces by have bees, bats, the wind, birds
or other insects pollinate the flower. Then the grain of pollen takes a journey towards
the flower’s ovule. There a seed grows like a baby in a mothers womb.
What are the Smaller jobs
of the Leaves?
Well, there millions of different types of leaves and you might just think, oh, here’s a leaf, it
cleans our air, bye leaf! That’s not all it does it also takes CO2 from the air, turns it into
glucose and O2. After that it releases the O2 into the air because it doesn’t need it. It also
collects sunlight, or, light but sunlight is the most powerful. That’s why leaves are always high
up in a tree. Also because CO2 lifts up in the air when it leaves a cigar/cigarette, factory,
bonfire, your mouth/nose, or any other objects that create CO2. Leaves are mostly thin and
flat, that’s because it increases the surface area that absorbs sunlight and CO2, like the plant
root cell! If the leaf has any nutrients left from creating sugar with photosynthesis, it stores it
for the next time.
You see how leaves are a
Lot like skin?
Smaller Jobs of the roots
These pipes are located at the bottom of a plant and they are the thin/large
strings that hang from the plant when you take one out of the ground. There
are lots of types of roots like the fine roots, stilt roots, aerial roots, structural
roots but I’m not going through all of them. I think of roots as just three types:
Structural, Storage and Fine.
The Structural roots hold the plant in the ground so that it doesn’t blow away.
It’s mostly very thick. The storage roots store water, minerals, and nutrients,
as you may have imagined. The fine roots take the water, minerals and the
nutrients up towards the stem of a plant.
looks like a nerve net doesn’t
Smaller Jobs Of The Flower
The flowers are mainly used for reproduction, but how does this happen? First a bee or the
wind or a bat or bird is attracted to the sweet smell of nectar and pollen inside the flower. So
they fly towards the flower and take as many pollen grains as they can but leave one behind
inside the flower’s pistil, which then starts the big journey to the flower’s ovule where it grows
and becomes a seed. But if the animal or insect can’t smell the nectar inside the flower,
they’re still attracted to the beautiful form of the flower, except if the flower smells really bad
like the Rafflesia flower. Rotten meat! UGH!!!
Smaller Jobs of the Stem
The main jobs of the stem are holding the plant upright and transporting
water, minerals and nutrients through the plant. The stem is thought of
as mainly made up of three tissues- the dermal tissue, the ground tissue
and the vascular tissue. The stem has a extremely large job but I can’t
say much about it.
That Was It!!!
