Day # 59 view of a Pima cotton root

A Pima cotton plant was knocked of the table by someone in our family learning to use crutches. Watching a Pima do a 2-1/2 gainer has to be seen to be appreciated. The below photo will have to suffice.

This is an unintended opportunity to see what is happening below the soil. There were several dozen root hairs left in the soil, an inch of the tap root was severed from the plant.

The plants are kept moist, not wet. The mess was vacuumed up leaving no stain.
