We first had to propose a question and test it to see if it was profound enough to test. Our group decided to see how different chemical substances affect radish plants, and which substance will kill the plant fastest.

Methods

The group planted a total of 8 separate pots of seeds. Two pots consisted of only seeds and those were the control group of this experiment. The other plants also consisted of radish seeds but had chemicals ammonia, vinegar, or a combination of both applied once weekly with 30ml of water being applied daily (except on the weekends). As a result, there were a total of 8 pots. Two of each variable and two of the controls. Right after all the seeds were germinated in petri-dishes they were put into pots, covered with soil, and labeled to prevent confusion.
2 pots were labeled as: CONTROL - One of which was labeled control 1 and the other control 2
2 pots were labeled as: VINEGAR -One of which was labeled vinegar 1 and the other vinegar 2
2 pots were labeled as: AMMONIA -One of which was labeled ammonia 1 and the
