Plant Culture Results
Name: Hap S.
I have cultured four species of plants. They are carrot,
ginseng, arabidopsis and tobacco. These plants were cultured in the dark.
When I returned them to the light, one of those became green and the
others not. The green one was carrot.I want to ask you that why carrot
became green and the other three not?
Perhaps species differences in chlorophyll production, growth rates, and
plasticity/adaptability. You might want to use a search engine like
www.google.com, as well as checking a plant physiology text for further
