Going down?: growing in a soilless medium --
Stimulation. Too much salt on the salad: the effects of salt on plant growth - Hold your nose: root response to odor - The cube root: geotropism - Just one more drink: hydrotropism - You're tickling me: thigmotropism - Magnetic personality: testing the effects of magnetism - Batteries not included: electrical stimulation - Picture a fly: insectivorous plants - Go with the flow: plant growth in steambeds - The hanging garden: comparing hydrotropism and geotropism --
Transport. Cover up: transpiration in plant leaves - Temperature control valve: restricting petiole movement - Wick tricks: capillary action - Root pump: transporting water - Older is better: determining efficiency by age - Turn off the water: tree girdling - Bone dry: testing stiffness --
Fungi and simple plants. Great on pizza: testing mushrooms for sugar or starch - How high is the shelf: bracket fungi - Better than a sponge: testing moss for water retention - Sie, sie, vitamin C: test-tasting fiddleheads --
Plant dispersal. One if by air, two if by sea: cone seed dispersal - Baked soil island: growing in sterilized soil - Storm water garden: waterborne seed dispersal - Thumb a ride: seed dispersal of clinging seeds - Shot from a cannon: propelled seeds --
