CAN PHOTOSYNTHESIS TAKE PLACE WITH ARTIFICIAL LIGHT?

1.YES, IF THE INTENSITY OF LIGHT IS SUFFICIENT


2.PLANT GROWING INDOOR- WITHOUT NATURAL
SUNLIGHT BECOME ELONGATED AND SPINDLY- DUE
TO INSUFFICIENT INTENSITY OF LIGHT
3.EXPENSIVE LIGHT SOURCE THAT MIMICS THE
SUNLIGHT IS AVAILABLE
4.LIGHT---- 4000 ANGSTROM TO 7000 ANGSTROM
CAN PHOTOSYNTHESIS OCCUR IN THE ABSENCE OF LIGHT?
No because sunlight is needed to
convert carbon dioxide and water
into glucose
HOW DO PLANTS SURVIVE WINTER?
Winter is a difficult season for plants as well as animals. The number of hours of daylight is shorter
so there is less sunlight. Without sunlight green plants cannot photosynthesize and make their
food. The cold temperatures of winter slow them down and stops their growth. Freezing
temperatures stop water from circulating in the plants' sap.

Like animals, some plants survive through the winter in resting stages. Plants that we call annuals
only live for one year. They grow, reproduce and die at the end of summer. It is the seeds of
annual plants that survive through winter. These seeds will germinate and grow the following
spring.

Some plants survive as underground storage organs: tubers, such as potatoes, tap roots, such as
carrots, and bulbs, such as onions. These plants store food reserves in their underground storage
organs during the summer and autumn. In the following spring these food reserves are used to
grow new leaves and shoots above ground. Many of these plants are called perennials because
they do this year after year. In addition these plants will also produce large numbers of seeds each
year.
