Submitted by mlbyrne on Fri, 09/06/2019 - 15:27

The plant sample given out in class is a compound leaf; it has three main leaf parts similar to a clover. The three leaf parts are connected to the stem at the same point; the stem itself was redish maroon. The three leaf parts were different sizes and shapes, the main part (middle) was larger than the other two being 4.25 cm it is also a spade like shape with indentations. The outer leaves were smaller the right one being 3.5 cm and the left being 2.5cm presumably because it was damaged the most. Both the peripheral leaves were damaged and had leaf minor damage on them. The leaves all were firm and would return to its form. The overall plant piece is 6 cm tall and 5.5 cm wide.
