A potato is cut into a number of small pieces. These pieces are placed on wet cotton kept in a tray. After a few days, green shoots and coots appear only

from some potato pieces and not from all why?

I had it on my test for class XII.


The pieces of potato that bear nodes only can give rise to new plant by producing shoots and roots. But the pieces not bearing nodes cannot produce new plants. Thus from a whole potato only some pieces that bear nodes give rise to roots and shoots.
