How can I test and see what is in a certain substance or matter in general?
Like a random plant or mixture that i didn t know the contents of?

In general, you don't.
The brach of chemistry that identifies substances and mixtures is called analytical chemistry, and in general it takes an entire, well-equipped laboratory and a wide knowledge of chemistry to identify just anything.
In the case of plants, you probably need to do a DNA analysis, which is more in the realm of biology, but it too requires a large well-equipped laboratory.

Wow the first obvious thing to do is take it to a nursery. They may be able to help you right there. What's your reason for wanting to Analyze This. They may be able to direct you to a co-op or like the college Horticulture classes
