Ok... we were supposed to do the flower things, make a leaf, and a stem, but mine has a stem, and then a stemlet thing off the main stem, and a ton of leaves off that stem. do you think it would be alright if i just showed one leaf and the stem coming off the flower and didn't connect them, and how should i present this to get the best grade. BTW, my flower is a trumpet flower. It's basically like a big red hunnysuckle. This grade is pretty important to my science grade, because I can't get less than a "C" on mid-quarter. Thank you! Oh yah, long answers are cool, if you have lots of tips, but I need as many as possible, and try to get my favorite answer. I'll select favorites after I get my grades. Oh, and I need them fast, cuz my model is due tomorow. PS: I also have to label all the parts of the flower (ex: stamen, anther...) And if you're just answering this for points, go ahead, but please tell me so if it's just some weird thing. Actually, just tell me you needed points. THNX!!!!!
For a model, I need to make a full flower, a hald flower, and a leaf. How should I present this?
Use a PVC pipe for the main stem, maybe some PVC rods for the stemlet, cover it with aluminium foil or colored paper to make it look rough. add card board for leaves and probably you can use styrofoam for the flower head + cardboard for the petals.
edit: I didn't know what a trumpet flower was but I just saw a picture. probably for the flower itself, you could use a PET bottle (like those 600ml or 1.5L coke/pepsi bottles) cut the bottom off and fold some triangular parts up alittle to look like the petals.
