Caption: Cotton leaves. Developing leaves of a cotton plant, Gossypium sp.. Fully-grown cotton leaves are usually as broad as they are long, being 7.5- 15 centimetres across. They have three to five lobes which are roughly triangular. Plants use the green chlorophyll pigment in leaves to produce food using sunlight, a process known as photosynthesis. During photosynthesis the chlorophyll captures the energy in sunlight and uses it to power a reaction that uses carbon dioxide and water to create sugar and oxygen.
