Plant Competition

Plant Competition
  • Like animal, plants living in the same habitat have to complete for the same factors in order to survive.
  • Plants need water, carbon dioxide, sunlight and nutrient to make food.
  • Plants get water and nutrient from the soil.
  • If there are too many plants growing in the same area, the place will be overcrowded.
  • They complete for sunlight, water, nutrient and space.
  • Competition can occur among plants of the same species or of different species.
  • When competition occurs, the plants that receive enough water, nutrient and sunlight grow better and healthier. 
  • Weaker plants may become stunted, wilted or die.
