Cyan marks the cell membranes in this root, which fails to regenerate after cutting its tip away. Rather than new tissue outgrowth from the center (as in 3 days), a kind of wound closure takes place. The small outgrowth at the end of this film is evidence of that cell becoming a root hair, a cell type that is fully differentiated.
