Imaging live root tips growing under a foldscope. It’s freezing outside (-25 C) but I have some plants growing inside the home. I found a few root tips and mounted in a slide. Take a look; here is an attached video.

Imaging live root tips with plants growing under a #foldscope. Although I am in freezing cold weather (-25 C outside), I do have plants growing inside. Notice a clear “green” ting – possible related to the root microbiome. You can clearly see dramatic change in cell size from big to really small; with cell divisions (mitosis) happening closest to the root tip. #foldscope #houseplants #winterrescue What will you discover. Trying a time lapse on this now.
