A plant with a long but weak stem, found in my neighbourhood, is a money plant. The stem of the money plant is thin, long and weak and spread on the ground. Thus, it is called a creeper. Beanstalk, gourd plants and grapevines have weak stem but readily climbs up neighbouring support or a tree. These plants are called climbers.
- The Root absorbs water and minerals from the soil.
- The stem holds the plant upright.
- Stem conducts water to the leaves.
- The number of petals and sepals in flower may be different in different plants.
- If the flower’s sepals are joined together, then its petals may or may not be joined to the petal.
