Paheli uprooted a rose plant from the soil. Most of the root tips, with root hair were left behind in the soil. She planted it in a pot with new soil and watered it regularly. Will the plant grow or die? Give reason for your answer.

Answer:

Possible answers are:

  • Without the root hairs the roots will not be able to absorb water and nutrients and the plant will die.
  • The stem of the rose plant may grow new roots and the plant will live.
  • The rose plant may not be able to survive in a different type of soil.
