  • Parts of a Plant

  • A plant has many different parts that perform various functions.

  • The two main parts of the plant are the root and shoot.

  • Root usually grows under the ground while shoot usually grows above the ground.

  • The shoot has different parts called the stem, leaves, flowers and fruits.

  • The stem is the stalk of the plant. It helps the plant to stand upright.

  • It carries water and minerals from the root to the leaves and carries food prepared by the leaves to the different parts of the plant.

  • Branches are parts that grow from the stem.

  • Leaves grow on the stem and branches. They are usually green due to the presence of chlorophyll, which helps them to prepare food.

  • Leaves have small openings called stomata through which plants take in and give out air.

  • Flowers are the reproductive parts of the plant. They come in different shapes, sizes and colors.

  • By the process of pollination, many flowers develop into delicious fruits, which are eaten by us.

  • Roots help to anchor the plant to the ground.

  • They absorb the water and minerals required for the growth of the plant.

  • The End.
