How plants me­tab­o­lize their food

Re­cently, more sci­en­tific study has been di­rected to­ward plants and how they me­tab­o­lize their food. In ad­di­tion, sci­en­tists have been look­ing at how they grow and ei­ther pro­duce a prod­uct, or be­come a prod­uct.

Sci­ence News has a great ar­ti­cle on that study. Plants that have a more dif­fi­cult time pro­duc­ing a prod­uct de­vel­oped greater nu­tri­tional re­sults that they pass on to the an­i­mal king­dom when they are de­voured. For ex­am­ple, tomato plants that strug­gle to pro­duce a fruit ac­tu­ally cre­ate a fruit that is more nu­tri­tious, as well as more easy for gar­den- ers to grow.

Plants that feel that they are go­ing to be at­tacked by a preda­tor will give off a sub­stance (much like a hor­mone) that a mem­ber of the an­i­mal king­dom pro­duces, so the at­tacker will at­tack pre­ma­turely. Some­how, this will en­sure that the plant’s life, prod­uct or fruit will be spared. In ad­di­tion, it will pro­duce health­ier prod­uct.

One method to make your plants pro­duce a more vi­brant prod­uct is to shape the plant sev­eral times while it is grow­ing. Thus pro­duces a more ben­e­fi­cial prod­uct. If you give your flower bed or veg­gie gar­den small shocks of elec­tri­cal cur­rent, they will prod­uct more and bet­ter fruits and veg­eta­bles.
