Microscope images Aloe Vera stem and Basil leaf

Using the Zeiss IM microscope, we took these images showing phloem and zylem, plant cells and cell walls, and chlorophyll in chloroplasts (organelles within plant cells) in Basil leaf and Aloe Vera stem – the leaf was as it came off plant and the stem cut with kitchen knife by eye. The Basil leaf photos also show a vein going through the leaf.
