      I do – they seem soo magical !

      There are soo many different types of plants, some are found in deserts, under the sea and even the high mountain peaks. Some plants are parasitic and thrive off of other plants, whilst some are carnivorous and eat bugs. They have nearly adapted to survive in most places.

      They can make their own food using sunlight, which in turn provide humans (and animals) with food. We use them for furniture, fuel and the majority of our medicines originated from plants. Plus they provide Oxygen, so we can breath.

      Without plants our lives would be very different and so I study them, so that we can use them more efficiently and so we can protect them.
