Thanks for your question. Plants, just like
animals, have "preferences" about where they would
like to live. Given a choice, each species of
plant would choose conditions that they were best
For example, a cactus survives
well in very dry areas like deserts, but it would
not survive in the Arctic even though it is a dry
place too. A cactus would be too cold in this
environment and it would freeze.
plants can't get up and move (their pollen or
seeds get scattered by wind, other animals, etc.)
they often have to cope with conditions where they
are located or they will not survive. Most plants
prefer to live where they have enough water,
nutrients for growth and sunlight for
photosynthesis (to produce energy).
always exceptions and some plants can survive in
very extreme conditions!
