I am doing a science project that has to do with transpiration. I have planted radishes, and water them with colored water to see if the color will come up the plant and maybe eventually change the color of the plant. I am at a point and I need to make slides of my plants in order to see if there has been a color change. My biology teacher says that I need to make tissue slides. I have looked on the Internet and have not been able to find any information on making the slides. Any help you could give me would be great.
