Introduction: Hello everyone! My name is Rebekah and I am here to tell you about the Life Cycle of Marty the Flower! In this video, I will cover 5 topics. 1.) What are plants? 2.) What is Marty's Life Cycle? 3.) Marty's Plant Anatomy 4.) Marty's Habitat 5.) How big will Marty grow to be?
Part One: What are Plants? The definition of a plant is a living organism of the kind exemplified by trees, shrubs, herbs, grasses, ferns, and mosses, typically growing in a permanent site, absorbing water and inorganic substances through its roots, and synthesizing nutrients in its leaves by photosynthesis using the green pigment chlorophyll.
Part Two: What is Marty’s Life Cycle? A plant starts with a seed. When the seed it watered it starts to germinate and the plant starts to grow. Then, the grown plant produce flowers which are then fertilized and produce new seeds in the form of a seedpod or a fruit. Lastly, the plant will decay and leave its seeds to start the germination process over again. There are 4 types of plants: annual, biennial, perennial, and monocarpic. Annual plants grow once a year. Biennial plants grow two times a year. Perennials live up to several years at a time. And monocarpic plants take several years to grow to its full maturity, like a tree.
Part Three: Marty’s Plant Anatomy As a flower, Marty has many different parts. Here are the main parts of a flower: the roots, stem, leaves, receptacle, sepal, the stamen (which includes the anthers and filaments), the pistil (which includes the stigma, style, ovary, and ovule), the petals. The receptacle and sepal are what hold the petals together. The stamen includes anthers which produce pollen and the filaments which hold the anthers up. The pistil includes the stigma, a sticky ball at the top of the pistil, the style which holds the stigma up, and the ovary that contains the female eggs called ovules.
Part Four: Marty’s Habitat Flowers, such as Marty, can be found in many different habitats including, the desert, rainforest, and even your own backyard. It is very important for any plant to have a lot of warm sunlight, water, and nutrients. If you decide to grow a plant, make sure that the climate the plant is in is very warm, gets a lot of natural sunlight, and is watered every day.
Part Five: How Big Will Marty Grow to Be? Since Marty is a flower, he will only grow to be about half a foot tall, but there are many plants that can grow to be at least 400 feet tall! It really depends on where the plant is located and how much nutrients and energy it can get to grow.
