Limnophila aromatica stem structure

I trimmed my aromatica the other day and was squeezing the stem for my wife to smell when I noticed how cool the structure of the stem was, never noticed it before. Thought it was a good photo op!





Wishing I had a set of tubes in my arsenal but a crop will have to do.

It looks sorta like okra when you slice it open.

all my stems do that, and crypts and a few other plants. its because the wounds are bigger then the stomata on the leaves so it is easier to release O2 through the cuts. it kinda cool how a small wound can actually help the plant.
