Caption: Light micrograph of the leaf of the bog moss, Sphagnum sp. . A continuous network of true cells (green) surrounds numerous wide, partitioned chambers (white). The true cells are highly elongated and contain green chloroplasts, the sites of photosynthesis within the cell. The partitioned chambers retain water and give the plant its sponge- like properties. Because of its water holding capacity, sphagnum is used as a packing material for the transportation of other cultivated plants. Magnification: x200 at 35mm size.
