Photosynthesis :)

Post by conmister45 » Sat Nov 15, 2008 1:50 pm

How much CO2 does a small aquatic plant need for photosynthesis?
I am creating a lab where I put a destarched aquatic plant into different temperatures to look at the affects. I was thinking of putting one in a box so i can control that each plant at differnent temperatures will get the same type of light because sun light may be better for a plant than a white light that I may use in a fridge.
Thanks

Some aquatic plants need very little CO2. You need to dig up the literature and see if your plant possesses the inorganic carbon concentrating mechanism.
