How do plants use glucose???

Answer: Plants use glucose for 6 things.

1) For respiration - The glucose plant makes in photosynthesis is then used in respiration. This releases energy that is then used to convert the remaining glucose into other substances. They may also need to gather a few minerals from the soil to help with this.

2) Making fruits - Glucose and fructose can be turned into sucrose for storing
