Leaves of a healthy potted plant were coated with vaseline. Will this plant remain healthy for long? Give reason for your answer.

Answer :

The plant whose leaves are coated with vaseline will not remain healthy for long because vaseline will make a coating on the leaves. This will close the stomata due to which plant will stop exchange of gases and transpiration. This plant won’t be able to get carbon dioxide for photosynthesis. Thus, the plant will not be able to prepare its food. As a result, plant will die.
