Actually plants do need the sun. To preform photosynthesis
Why is it so hot today? We don't need this heat.
It's a process when plant take sunlight, CO2, and water to produce energy. They are the reactants
The plant takes in the water through the roots and the water travels up the xylem and goes to the leaves. Photosynthesis takes place in the leaves in a place called the chloroplast.
Is that all I need to know about photosynthesis?
NO there's actually more. I forgot to mention that there layers to the leaf. The second layer, palisade layer is where photosynthesis actually occurs.
In all those layer there's something called a stomata. It's a pore, found in the epidermis of leaves guarded by a pair of special cells called guard cells that are responsible for guarding the stomatal opening.
Ohh that makes sense.
Ohh thank you for explaining photosynthesis!
At the end when of breaking all the reactants there are products released which is oxygen and glucose. They are moved by the phloem, its job is to move nutrients and waste out of the plant. In all its a simple equation, 6CO2 + 6H20 + (energy/sunlight) → C6H12O6 + 6O2
