Blasket – your challenge this week was to complete the experiment,
to investigate the function of the stem in a plant.
We know that the stem has 2 jobs,
1 it holds the plant upright and
2 it transports water around the plant.
I did the experiment and this is a photo of the flowers 72 hours later.
I hope you can see the green from the dyed water in the petals of the flower.
This proves that the stem DOES transport water around the plant.
Now it is time to write up your results.
GOOD LUCK.. Don’t forget to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your results and I’ll post them on our page on Friday.
