A student investigated the loss of water through the cuticle of holly leaves after spraying them with solutions of inereasing acidity. Four young holly plants were sprayed with solutions of different pH values for th weeks. Two leaves were then selected at random from each plant and the cuticle was separated from each one using a mixture of enzymes.
