Houseplant Leaf

This is a short observation of the leaves of a houseplant. It is easy to observe the iconic rectangular shaped cellulose walled cells of the plant. The two sides of the leaf show different features. The branches that connect the cells and the pores that allow for the plant to breathe can also be observed. On the last image below close to the edge of the leaf the skin pores can be observed.
