Figure 3: (a) Measurement of mature stem cut pieces. (b) Schematic transverse section of developing stem (unstained, ×4) prismatic crystals at ×10. (c) Detailed transverse section of developing stem (stained with phloroglucinol and hydrochloric acid, ×10) (d) Lignified xylem and its parenchyma and phloem (×40). (e) Schematic transverse section of mature stem (unstained, ×4) (f) Detailed transverse section of mature stem (unstained, ×10). (g) Detailed transverse section of mature stem (stained with phloroglucinol and hydrochloric acid ×10). (h) Lignified xylem, pericyclic fibers, and unstained phloem, medullary rays at ×40. Cu – Cuticle, co – Cortex, p.f – Pericyclic fiber, ep – Epidermis, m.r – Medullary rays, pi – Pith, ph – Phloem, p.cr – Prismatic crystal, xy – Xylem
