He eyed the plant. It looked spiky. He pressed his finger to the spine. Ow that bloody hurt. He accidentally knocked the plant over. The soil spilt on the desk. He looked around, picked the plant up and swept the soil into Cassandra's bag infront of him.
"Marco, stop your line of thinking there before you hurt yourself."

"Not quite, though it is best to make sure a plant is in the right temperature zone. 2 points."

"Very good. It can help quite a bit. 3 points."

This would also help you to know how it might fare in various climates and regions." Xana answered.
"Excellent, Xana. 4 points. Particularly in an experimental setting, it is necessary to make sure we record as many environmental factors as possible."

"Well said, Apedemak. 4 points. You can tell much about the environment, and the plants' needs, by temperature alone. And as you mentioned it is also a way to get to know a plant. If it is wilting, for instance, despite being well watered then you may want to move the plant to a cooler location."

"To track what the plant prefers best." Cassandra said as she wrote down the temperature in her Journal. "This way you can adjust it the following day to make it more confortable."
"Thank you Cassandra, 3 points."

"Now, as Xana mentioned, there are various factors tied in with temperature. It's easy to maintain these factors in a controlled setting such as the greenhouses, but plants outside are a bit different. Go ahead and record that this classroom is at 23% humidity. I mentioned that there could be several entries per plant per day. Why would this be?"
