Asked in Botany or Plant Biology
Why do plants convert glucose to starch?
Glucose is soluble in water and starch is insoluble in water. So for storage in a rather wet medium such as a plant cell, glucose is changed to insoluble starch. When the plant needs glucose for respiration or other processes it changes the starch back to soluble glucose for transportation in solution through the phloem system.
