Orange flower

This is my first ever post, and I’m really anxious to share my foldscoping adventures! The following is a sample of an orange petal from a potted flower that my dad got for his birthday. I’m learning about photosynthesis and plant biology in bio right now, so it’s really cool to see that my textbook isn’t lying to me!

    @Alice: that’s a really interesting structure. I wonder what those long marks are – they look like bubbles?

    You can also find many stomata related posts. But nobody has yet seen them open and close. That would be fun 🙂

    Cheers

    @Alice: also, if you take a little bit of nail polish and apply that to a plant surface and let it dry and peel off the same and watch that – you can make a mold of the leaf surface. It will allow you to image stomata shapes in all kind of fun ways..

    Cheers
