    Cacti are some plants that have fleshy stems, blocks, and the branches contain scales and thorns and have no leafy structure or branch. The pad of cactus is changed stalks. They have a certain slimy waxy coating. The pointed thorns are transformed leaves that break up the breezes that are found blowing over pad surfaces. Additional to that they help in shading the stalk. The physical structure of the roots is usually distinguished by broad and shallow bodies, The rainwater is also covered up soon.

    The process of photosynthesis:

    Every plant that is available on the earth does photosynthesis. Photosynthesis is the process of accumulating carbon dioxide within holes that are found in their leaves, further known as “stomata” and using sunlight and water to transform it into sugar and oxygen, so that the plants get energy for their activities. Cactus use CAM photosynthesis. This is a bit different. In this CAM photosynthesis, the stomata open only during the nighttime. It can also be said that the stomata open only when it faces a cooler surrounding. This is done to avoid loss of moisture through transpiration.

    But other than water, sunlight is also an essential component of photosynthesis. Hence, during the daytime, the sunlight is scorching everywhere. That is the ideal time for pre-storing the sunlight in the leaves. Yes, stomata remain closed but to acquire sunlight there is no need for open stomata. The closed ones do the job quite similarly too.

    It is also true that the cactus might look dangerous and self-protective. However, they are not at all immune to many predators, including rodents, bears, and some humans. They are a beautiful part of our ecosystem. So they should be taken care of, and protected too. There are already harsh and cruel people on the planet. And therefore let’s take some responsibility to save them.

    Simple molecules such as water can be absorbed directly from the environment, but other types of sugars, it is very large and difficult to use.

    Even if this were not the case, it would be difficult for the plants to find exactly what sugar they need, are available at all times for the environment.

    Instead, they prefer to create their own, with the help of the three main ingredients are: carbon dioxide, water, and light.

    The source of carbon is carbon dioxide, which is essential for the process of photosynthesis.

    The cost of building materials, as well as the natural world.

    This element creates the key ingredient in all of the sugars produced by the plant, and it can be said that all of the other parts of the plant!

    Plants get their carbon dioxide from the surrounding air, so that the trees and other plants, and is an important part of helping to remove excess carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.

    In the water, it is absorbed by the plant, principally through the roots, and the split-up of the atoms of hydrogen and oxygen in order to function as a source of chemical energy, in the actual synthesis process.

    Water is a source of hydrogen, and it is the second main ingredient is sugar.

    The light energy is absorbed by the plant, by its chloroplasts.

    Since most of the plants growing in well-lit areas, the advice is to be clear about what the light is that they can be used for this process.

    Some of the wavelengths of light better than the photosynthetic reaksiyalarında or the other; hence, these waves are absorbed.

    They do not work well are usually also in the fact that it is a green-and the array of the light is reflected, so the plants are, in general, and the chloroplasts of plants and in particular, look at the green.

    Plants that don’t live in sunny areas, can be as much of a picky eater.

    Why, you are going to see the plants in the shade, dark blue in place of green, and some of the deep seas, the plants are almost black.

    They absorb the light waves, and the reflection is not very much.
