On plant Fenestraria




When growing in the wild, the plant grows mostly buried by sand. The transparent tips are usually above the sand and they allow light into the leaves fso it can photosynthesise

Miru - I think you are really on the wrong site to ask this question. We are gardeners and yes, we try to understand our plants, but most of us aren't scientists or learning bionics. Sorry.

Another point is that you should be researching this yourself, not asking other people to do it for you. I make no apology for saying this. I was a teacher and would be concerned to hear that students were asking others to give them information that they should be finding out for themselves - don't you have a library?
