Answer the question you selected for profile question 3 here (300 words):
One of the coolest things about plants to me is how they grow. When you and I were born is much like when your dog was born - we are born with all of our parts present (arms, legs, nose, ears) and then they get bigger as we get older. Plants are very different! When plants are "born" (when they rise from the soil), they have very few plant parts, and they are able to initiate new organs (like leaves, branches, and flowers) as they get bigger. That would be like if we were able to grow many sets of arms as we get taller, but we can't. Plants are so cool!
