Parts of the Plant

Graphic showing a plant at multiple stages of life

Stem

This is the structure of the plant. The stem supports the plant.

The stem is also responsible for water and nutrient transportation.

Roots

The roots help to support the plant from the ground. They act life and anchor.

They also drink all the water and nutrients the plant needs.

The root hairs are there so that the plant has the biggest area possible to drink the water.

Flower

The flower is the part of the plant dedicated to seed and fruit production.

The flowers grow and once they are pollinated, either by bees or wind, they produce seeds and fruit.

 

Fruit

The fruit is what the plant prodces after the flowers have been pollinated.

Fruit is designed to be eaten so the seeds are spread by the animals eating it.

Leaf

The leaf uses photosynthesis to produce sugars and oxygen from carbon dioxide, light and water.

The leaves produce the food that the plant uses to grow.
