Chlorophyll is maistly fund in leafs, athin plastids, that are athin the leaf cells. The leaf can be thocht o as a fuid factory. Leafs o plants vary in shape an size, but thay are aye the plant organ best suited tae fang solar energy. Ance the fuid is made in the leaf, it is transportit tae the ither pairts o the plant sic as stocks an ruits. [1][2]
