Mesophyll cells can be isolated from the leaves of Zinnia, a herbaceous land plant. In addition, we showed that soybean mesophyll cells can be easily isolated. Thus, we propose the use of land plant cells as a substitute for Egeria densa leaves to observe chloroplast starch in lower secondary school science classes. The use of Egeria densa, which is a submerged plant, as a model may confuse students during discussions regarding entry and exit of gases through leaves. The proposed substitution can guarantee continuous availability of materials for conducting plant experiments and promote the understanding of photosynthesis function among students.
