This week we began learning about Biological Molecules and how they form together and how they bond. The plants we are growing have finally flowered so we can begin breeding them to try and get specific results. I believe that the class decided on attempting to make the tallest plant possible, by breeding only exceptionally […]

This species of moss does indeed fall under the bryophyte category. (Bryophytes being known as smaller plants growing in groups in moist environments, aka most mosses […]
