CEROPEGIA-WOODII-String-of-Hearts Tuber beads are small beads which form on stem at the leaf bases. Can be planted to produce new vines. Press the tuber into the soil, & keep it moist (not wet), plant the bead while it is still attached to the mother plant, for speedier rooting. Once rooted & growing, sever from the main plant.
Naples garlic The structure of garlic could be mistaken for exquisite coloured glass. When a tiny stem section is stained with toluidine blue, a dye that builds up in the acidic parts of tissue, nucleic acids show up in blue. The dark spot is a bundle of vascular tissue that carries nutrients and fluids up the stem. The full image is a composite of 55 shots.
Spring and flower science bulletin board idea: Love this growing plants display - very creative!!! Could do one main flower (sunflower) stem out of a pool noodle and students' art along with it- very cool idea.
Try this science experiment with children over the course of several days. Fill up 4 vases with different coloured water and put 1 white carnation in each one. Watch the flowers over the next four days change to the colour of the water.
Rob Kesseler's Morphogenesis, SEM photograph of wild Portuguese flora, including orchids. Microfine sections of stems were stained to expose functional characteristics. Large format images constructed from up to 500 individual high magnification frames.
I love the detail in this! This is a plant cell. The range of sizes of circles makes it very eye catching and interesting to look at. It makes you want to look closer which makes a great image. Again this could be easily repeated and continued to create a print.
