Botany course: Mitosis

I am in the second week of my botany course and I am currently learning about plant growth, specifically mitosis and meiosis. Mitosis is the process of chromosome duplication while meiosis is the process in which the plant sex cells are being formed through chromosome divison.

I found this video online which demonstrates the mitosis of a blood lilly. I found it pretty fascinating and thought you might as well.
