    Will a daisy plant transpire more in a humid environment or in a dry environment? Why?

    Thank you!

    If warm, in a dry environment. Because of the concentration gradient. More water in plant, less in air. It would be more difficult for it to transpire in humid air.

    I agree.

    Would a Daisy be any different than any other plants thoguh?

    Hmm.. transpiration is mostly driven by energy from the sun... If the enery is constant does the air humidity make a difference? It makes sense that it would transpire more in a more dry environment but does it really?
    Do not try and bend the spoon. That's impossible. Instead... only realize the truth. There is no spoon. Then you'll see that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself. -Spoon Boy
