Vacuole CHelsea & Ronald

Plant cells have a large vacuole that helps maintain the structure of the plant cell by storing water. Vacuoles are distributed throughout the cell's cytoplasm. Most are spaced equidistantly between the cell membrane, the nucleus, and the cell's other large organelles.

The organelle has no basic shape or size; its structure varies according to the needs of the cell.

Vacuoles are found in plant cells in the cytoplasm.

Vacuoles store food or any variety of nutrients a cell might need to survive. For example, like water. They can even store waste products so the rest of the cell is protected. Storage bubbles.

The larger the vacuole the more water it can hold for the plant bubble, but if there is less water in the vacuole for the plant cell then there is a less chance for the cell to survive.

A vacuole is like a storage closet at BCIT. The closet stores all the materials, papers, tools, etc that the school needs just like a vacuole stores water for plant cells.
