In this video we discover what causes various ailments in plants, and under what conditions they can thrive. Through systematic and funny observations of plants being kept under poor conditions by plant shop owner Ivy, the fundamental needs of plants are introduced, such as light, air, water, nutrients and space. Teacher notes: After viewing, students could plant seeds in pots. When the seedlings grow, they could place the pots in different locations around the school. For example, they could put pots in sunnier and shadier positions. When watering the pots, they should give the same amount to each plant. The children could measure the height of each plant at regular intervals and plot the results on a line graph. You could ask the children to suggest reasons for any differences in growth between plants in different locations.
