What is the definition of elodea leaf?
An Elodea Cell is a multi-celled cell. It has a cell wall, ploraplats, and Cytoplasm. It also moves and grows. It is an underwater plant with grass-like leaves.

Elodea is a group of aquatic plants also called the waterweeds. AnElodea leaf would be a leaf from one of these plants.
Yes, the elodea cell does have a nucleus.
Look somewhere else ok.........:> Byee
because it is a plant!:D
You have asked "how many cell layers are there in an Elodea cell". Obviously a cell cannot contain layers of cells so your original question is nonsense. What you should have… asked is "how many cell layers are there in an Elodea leaf?". Read it again. Think about it. Think until it hurts then think some more. It's not my fault you can't see them. If you have as much trouble seeing what's there as you seem to have reading what you've written I'm not surprised. The way to see two layers of cells is to focus on one layer and then change the focus so that the other layer comes into view. To show there are two layers by continually altering the focus in ONE direction only you should be able to move through the sequence:- no layer in focus > one layer in focus > other layer in focus > no layer in focus
the shape of it is kinda like a blob
Well because the elodea leaf is a plant cell the flexibility can be factored down to the support cell skeleton which is mad up of microtubles which have enough resistance and …spring in them enabling them to allow the cell to hold their shape but allowing it to bend. another factor can be of the medium in which the organelles reside in which is the cytoplasm (a starch fluid that transports things around with cytoplasmic streaming such as proteins the endoplasmic reticulum also helps in the moving of things through out the cell)
it doesnt stain because the leaf is already green, so the cellsshould be easy to see
because it is already green when you look at it so if you stain it, say with methylene blue, the color will change and you will not be able to recognize some of the structures… in the cell like you would without it being stained.
The cell wall has very little flexibility - but the cell membrane is flexible. With elodea cells, the cell wall will stay in the same place, but the cell membrane will move. … Plasmolysis, shrinking due to water loss, causes the cell contents to shrink, while the cell wall remains almost the same. The contents will appear like a small circle inside the rectangular boundary of the cell wall.
They are purple in color. So there is no need
