Suitable leaves include brassica cotyledons and fresh spinach. To compare photosynthesis in sun and plants, we suggest comparing pelargonium and aspidistra leaves. The leaf surface should be smooth (avoid plants with hairy leaves), and not too thick.
Sometimes photosynthesis is limited by the concentration of carbon dioxide in the air. Even if there is plenty of light, a plant cannot photosynthesise if there is insufficient carbon dioxide.
Efffects of Temperature on Photosynthesis in Plants - …
A broad-spectrum daylight spot lamp with a Neodymium sleeve. The spectrum is ideal for plant’s photosynthesis and the UVA (ultraviolet A) light contributes to reptiles’ physiological well-being. The spot allows one to direct the heat and light in a certain direction to create basking sites in the terrarium.

Another important reason to take temperatureinto account in our photosynthesis flow is that it turns out that inmost environments, an increase in temperature correlates with anincrease in precipitation, and since many regions where plants groware somewhat limited by water, especially towards the end of thegrowing season, increased precipitation leads to a greater yearlyrate of photosynthetic uptake of atmospheric carbon.
Exo Terra : Daylight Basking Spot
I think this
because I already know that a plant needs sunlight to be able to
perform photosynthesis as shown in the formula below:
Water + Carbon dioxide>> Sunlight>> chlorophyll>> Glucose + oxygen
Also I know that if you increase anything on the left-hand side of
this formula (the part I have boxed on the diagram above), everything
on the right hand side will increase (Increase of input = increase of
output.)This means that if the concentration of light were to be
increased, the levels of glucose and oxygen (The rate of
photosynthesis) will increase.
sarcodactylis Swingle) were investigated
Aninteresting thing happens when the rate of photosynthesis increases;the leaf interiors are filled with more CO2, so thestomata close down to limit the intake of more CO2, and indoing this, the plant also limits the amount of water that canescape.
Increasing Rates of Photosynthesis
Making an aquarium or a terrarium is not a complicated thing. Learning to build them isvery useful for those who are fond of breeding animals, observing them, taking picturesand movies. You can use an aquarium to breed fish, amphibians, protists, algae, artemia,shrimps, etc. You can use a terrarium to breed many species of animals, but avoid raisingspecies which suffer in captivity. Aquaria and terrariums can be used also to take picturesof animals temporarily taken from their environment.
In their simpler form, acquaria and terrariums are simple glass boxes enclosed on 5 sidesand which can be provided with a lid. This simple container is suitable to breedamphibians and as a terrarium. Aquaria for fish require a compartment for a filter, a pumpfor water circulation, another pump for air, a thermostat, lighting, etc. We'll deal ofthe simplest aquaria.
How you can build an aquarium? In first you have to make a drawing. The bottom glass hasto be surrounded by the other four walls and it has to be the thickest. The thickness ofthe plates has to be proportioned to the size of the aquarium. Avoid building too wide,and more importantly, too high an aquarium. The pressure of the water increases and couldunglue the plates. After having drawn the acquarium you have to cut the glass plates bymeans of a glasscutter. To do this keep the glasscutter vertical and push down with forcewhile you move it along a ruler. This operation require practice, so use some scrap piecesuntil you have the necessary manual ability. It is important you use a sharp glasscutter,kept in oil to avoid rust. Before gluing the slabs, you have to round off the edges withsandpaper in order to remove their sharp edges. With some acetone, clean the slabs wherethe silicone rubber will be deposited. As the acetone is toxic, work outdoor or in a wellventilate piece. Use high quality transparent silicone. To keep the internal walls free ofexcessive glue, on the slabs and near the gluing positions, place stripes of sticking tape(figure 6). When the silicone is cured, remove these stripes and the excess glue.
: handling and cutting glass is a dangerousoperation which has to be made only by adult people wearing gloves and a heavy apron. Away to elegantly solve this problem is to order plates. A hardware or building supplystore can help. Never move aquaria and terrariums containing water or stones, move them onlywhen they are empty. Do not place aquaria in positions where a water leak could damagesomething below them, for example over electrical devices or sockets, and books. Onlyadults should handle glass-made aquaria or terrariums. Give children transparent plastictanks. Do not keep dangerous or rare organisms. Do not breed and most important, do notfree species which do not belong to your environment! Do not free sick animals or plants.
