  • Page 7: After studying these results, it is safe to conclude that hotter and colder weather does affect plant growth. If hotter and colder weather goes above, or below the required amount of temperature for a specific plant, that can cause severe consequences for that plant. For example, one potential consequence, from hotter weather is that the amount of shoots and roots, which helps the plant grow, declines ("Temperature And Plant Growth: How Does Temperature Affect Plant Growth"). That would negatively affect plant growth. Another potential consequence, from colder weather, could be suffocation, because the plant might be covered in frost, so therefore it wouldn't be able to breathe ("Temperature And Plant Growth: How Does Temperature Affect Plant Growth"). This shows that hotter and colder weather does affect plant growth.
  • Page 8: I would argue that hotter and colder weather does affect plant growth, because there is statistical data to prove this. After 80 days of experimentation on plants of two categories, hotter and normal temperature plants, the amount of Collars for the hot temperature plant, was 18, over 80 days, and the amount of collars for the normal temperature plant was 10 collars , over 80 days ("Temperature extremes: Effect on plant growth and development"). Also measured in a 80 day span was the Cumulative Leaf Area for both hot temperature plants, and normal temperature plants. For the hot temperature plants it was 5000 cm's squared for Cumulative Leaf Area , over 80 days, and for normal temperature plants, it was 2000 cm's squared, over 80 days for Cumulative Leaf Area (Temperature extremes: Effect on plant growth and development"). This shows that hotter and colder weather does affect plant growth.
  • Page 9: After thorough research, I can conclude that hotter and colder weather does affect plant growth based on the evidence and reasoning provided. There is statistical data from "Temperature extremes: Effect on plant growth and development" on the difference of hot temperature plants, and normal temperature plants via collars, and Cumulative Leaf Area. There are specific temperatures at which temperatures for cold plants, medium plants, and hot plants, should be at from "Temperature Requirements of Selected House Plants". Also there are many consequences if certain plants are too high in temperature, or too low in temperature from "Temperature And Plant Growth : How Does Temperature Affect Plant Growth". So, based off all the evidence and reasoning provided, hotter and colder weather does affect plant growth.
  • Shivam forms a conclusion that plant growth is affected by hotter and colder weather .
  • Page 10: A few ways to preserve your plants are to install shaders to block sunlight from directly hitting your plants, also you should water your plants daily, and well, so they're hydrated, another way too get around weather, is too plant your plants in a location that is safe for them, where they won't get harmed, and also applying mulch is very helpful, to increase moisture ("Temperature And Plant Growth: How does Temperature Affect Plant Growth").
