- a plant with big leaves
- a jar of petroleum jelly
- Take a blob of jelly and coat the top side of a leaf. Make sure to apply a thick layer all over.
- Take another blob and cover the bottom side of a different leaf.
- In a few days, one leaf will look just fine.
- But the other leaf will curl up and wither. That's because it can't breathe.
Which leaf curled up after a few days?
