How to maintain an african American plant
Keep an African American plant healthy by maintaining its root system, a plant specialist has found.
Maintaining a plant’s root system can help maintain the health of a plant that produces oil from the root system to the leaves, which are harvested as a plant produces food.
Plant specialist Dr. Joseph L. Cramer, of the University of Florida, told ABC News that the root-care system is key to maintaining a plant.
Cramer’s study, published online this month in the Journal of Plant Physiology, looked at the root health of more than 50 African American varieties and plants.
The plant’s roots are responsible for producing an oil that is used in the food that comes from its roots.
If the plant is damaged or killed off, that oil will have to be produced elsewhere.
