    1. 1. 7 Things Plants Need Chandler F. Pd. 9
    2. 2. The 7 Needs 1. Room to grow 2. Temperature 3. Light 4. Water 5. Air 6. Nutrients 7. Time
    3. 3. First Need-Room to Grow Plants like room to grow. The part of the plant above the ground needs space for the leaves to expand and carry out the job of making food. The roots also need room. If they get crowded together, it results in smaller amounts of growth.
    4. 4. 2nd Need-Temperature Most plants are like humans when it comes to temperature. Some plants like warmer climates while other like cooler ones. It is always good to know where a plant came from so you can give the best conditions for best growth.
    5. 5. 3rd--Light Plant grown indoors like bright light. Try to place the plant by a window facing the south or west to get the best light. When a plant is getting to much light its stem will lean and grow towards the light. If you don’t have have a window try using a grow light.
    6. 6. 4th--Water It is essential for a plant to receive the right amount of water. If u give the plant too much or too little water, the plant will die. Before purchasing the plant, make sure and research how much water it will need. The required amount of water varies from plant to plant. The plant also uses water to make simple sugars and to gather more sunlight.
    7. 7. 5th--Air Plants use carbon dioxide in the air and return oxygen in a process called photosynthesis. The plants make sugars from carbon dioxide in the air and use the sugars for more energy. Smoke, gases, and other pollutants can damage the plants.
    8. 8. 6th--Nutrients Most of the nutrients that a plant needs are dissolved in water and then taken up by the plants through the roots. Fertilizer helps keep nutrients in the soil. The three most important nutrients are nitrogen, phosphorous, and potassium.
    9. 9. 7th--Time Some plants require more time to grow than others. Plants that grow outdoors need a certain to flower or fruit than others. The cells in the plant must have enough time to grow and multiply for the plant to reach full maturity.
