Flower and Plant Parts

Sometimes people forget that plants are living things. The plants are similar to humans since both are living things. Plants grow, reproduce, and, like humans, they need to eat.

Plants have six basic parts: the root, stem, flower, fruit, leaf and seed. The purpose of the flower of a plant is not just to look pretty. Flowers have an important function which is to produce seeds.

The pistil is the female part of a flower, and it is normally found in the middle of the flower. The pistil has three parts which are the stigma, style, and ovary.

The sepal is a small leafy part at the base of the flower. The stamen are the male parts of the flower and are thin stalks with round tips that hold grains of pollen. It is important to water plants so that the roots of the plant can absorb the water it needs to grow.

The stem of a plant gives it support and allows it to stand so that it will get sunlight. Leaves are the food-making factories of a plant. The fruit produced by a plant is the plant’s ripened ovary. The fruits protect the seeds that are found inside.

For a plant to live and to grow it needs light, air, water, nutrients, time, the right temperature, and room to grow.
