Agave is a plant that belongs to the family of Asparagaceae, and it has over 208 different spices. They range from 6 inches to 10 feet tall. Some of the agave species has sharp pointy leaves with curled fibers on its end. Aloe, also known as Aloe vera, belongs to the family of Asphodelaceae and it has over 500 different spices. Though both agave and aloe have similar looks and are tolerant of the drought, there are huge internal differences between agave and aloe. The juice of aloe vera can be consumed in various ways, but most agave plants are dangerous and poisonous so its juice cannot be consumed.


Though the leave of agave and aloe may look very similar, existing they are quite different. Agave leaves are fibrous and have a vascular system of fiber running on the entire leaves. With this trait, rope and strings can be made from agave leaves. Aloe leaves have a gelatinous interior. Its leaves have no fiber. Agave leaves can be used for the production of strings and ropes, as an ornamental plant and in the output of tequila while aloe is medicinal and it is widely used in the pharmaceutical industry. Aloe is used to treating minor burns, skin rashes, and to a lower level of sugar in the blood.

Monocots and dicots, also can be referred to as monocotyledons and dicotyledons are classes of flowering plants. The monocots, also called liliopsida, have over 75,000 plant species; while the dicotyledons, also called magnoliopsida, have about 175,000 plant species too. Monocotyledonous plants have just a terminal cotyledon in their seeds, while dicotyledonous plants have two lateral cotyledons in their seeds. In addition, for the monocots, their seed germination is usually hypogeal; while for the dicots, their seed germination is usually hypogeal or epigeal.


The stomata of the monocots are evenly distributed on the two surfaces of their leaves, but for the dicots, the stomata are on the bottom surface of the leaves. The monocots usually have adventitious or fibrous root, while the dicots are usually of tap roots. The monocots are mostly herbaceous, while the dicots range from annual plants to tress. For the monocots, the vascular bundles are scattered through the stem; while for the dicots the vascular bundles are arranged in rings.

The rate of photosynthesis keeps rising until 40 degrees Celsius. Above the temperature of 40 degrees, the enzymes responsible for photosynthesis lose their shape and cannot synthesize glucose anymore. Hence photosynthesis experiences a steep drop and around 50-60 degrees, the enzymes get completely destroyed hence photosynthesis stops completely.

Fertilizer is a substance which is used to make the soil more suitable for growing plants. There is no big difference Fertilizer and Turf Builder, the latter is just an example of fertilizer. Since fertilizer can either be synthetic or natural, Turf builder belongs to the category of synthetic fertilizer. Turf builder is just a type of fertilizer you will find in the market and it is produced by scotts company. Turf builder is usually referred to as a miracle fertilizer. It is mostly used for growing green lawns and other plants.


Although, turf builder is considered as a miracle fertilizer, it can cause more harm to the soil since it is a synthetic fertilizer. While natural fertilizer will add nutrients that will stay with the soil for a long period, turf builder will only add nutrients to the soil for weeks. However, people use turf builder because it has the ability to release nutrients to the soil in a way that will be enjoyed by all the plants and this makes the plants to grow at the same rate.

You have to realize that hay is grass but the hay is the dried version of grass. Hay is usually stocked because they are used for different things. There are some that are used to feed the animals while there are also some that are stored for future use.


Hay is normally used to feed herbivores but there are instances when pigs can be fed with hay too. They may just have a harder time digesting the hay because their systems are not meant for that. There are also some animals that can be fed with grass better because of the water content of grass that hay does not have anymore.

There are some people who are not too sure about the differences between CBD and CBN. These are known to come from the same plant which is cannabis. CBD stands for cannabidiol while CBN stands for cannabinol. CBD is normally used in order to cure different conditions and it does not have any psychoactive effects. This means that it will only provide the comfort and relief that people with certain conditions may need.

For example, people who are experiencing arthritis may need this. CBN is used by people who are suffering from chronic pain. They need something that will act as a sedative and this works really well in providing this effect.

Protists and fungi are known to be part of Kingdom Protista and Kingdom Fungi. These are considered to be less organized organisms, especially when compared to other animals from the other kingdoms. Their chromosomes are organized properly so that they can have a nucleus. Both will have asexual reproduction but the difference is how the reproduction will occur.

For protists, it would occur through the binary fission while in fungi, it will occur through the spores. There are also some that are under these kingdoms that use sexual reproduction. Take note that for Protists, no septa can be found but for fungi, septa can be found. These characteristics will help determine what organisms will be under protists and which ones can be found under septa.

In science, there are different types of reproduction. There is sexual reproduction and asexual reproduction. In asexual reproduction, there is only one single parent involved compared to sexual reproduction, where there are two parents involved. There are individual plants that have asexual reproduction. People have sexual reproduction.

In these types of reproduction, there are sporophytes and gametophytes. The structures are different in these things as well as where they participate. Sporophytes are involved in asexual reproduction, whereas gametophytes are found in sexual reproduction. The structure of a sporophyte is called a diploid structure, and the structure of a gametophyte is considered to be haploid. It seems fitting that a sporophyte would be involved in asexual reproduction since spores are found in some plants.

Plants also have the ability to continue their breed and survive in different environments through pollination. There are two kinds of pollination: self-pollination and cross-pollination that are very different from one another. Self-pollination happens when the anther produces pollen that is deposited on the stigma of the flower itself. Pollinators such as insects are not required for self-pollination to occur.

An example of a self-pollinated next-generation plant is it would have the same color as its mother plant. Cross-pollination, on the other hand, is the process of transferring pollen from one plant to another. Bees and the wind help in transferring the pollen to a different stigma of a flower. A good example of the result of cross-pollination is a growing plant that has an orange flower amidst a garden of red and yellow flowers.
