First, before starting my experiment I did some research on the growth of lima beans, so that I could start the base of the project. According to research done at the University of
The hypothesis behind this experiment is that the Gibberellic acid has a positive growth effect on the plant and causes it grow larger in height.
Conclusion: I decided to record 4 days of the experiment (for time reasons) and base observations off of the results I viewed during those four days to help me determine what the outcome would be in a week’s time. The results I found were that it took three days to notice the beginning of bean germination when the beans were placed outside in the sunlight, and 4 days to notice a little stem when the beans were placed in room temperature in sunlight. Throughout the four-day
Four cups of equal size were filled with one cup of garden soil. Lima beans were planted at an equal depth (one inch as instructed on the bag). Every day, for 33 days, each plant received one half tablespoon of the specified liquid. Beans one and two got one half tablespoon of water each,
The purpose of this lab was to investigate and observe the effects of organic vs. synthetic fertilizers on plant growth by planting lima beans with added amounts of fertilizers, and to see how does adding different nutrients to the soil affect the growth of the lima bean? A significant difference was examined between the plants that contained manure and miracle growth, unfortunately the plant with no additional fertilizers (Plant #3) did not show any growth. The plant that grew the most was the one that contained manure, to an extent the one that grew the most in a short period of time was the one that contained miracle growth, as shown in figure I. The hypothesis explaining if the Lima Bean plant contains synthetic nutrients in the soil then
We took two pots and filled soil in each of them. Then we planted twelve seeds of wheat. During this process, the sowing distance (spacing) between the seeds must be present. The plants required careful supervision to ensure careful controlled variables. Therefore, we decided that one of us will take the plant home. To water the plant we used a misting bottle that was used to spray equal amount of water in both experimental and control group in starting days meaning the first day until the fourth day. After the fourth day, the control group was watered every day and experimental group every two days. Before the plants were watered the moisture content was determined by touching by fingers. (If the soil was moist than usual, meaning more water was present in the soil, the plant would not receive any additional watering. However, due to the perfect weather conditions, this was never required. The experiment was followed as planned). For optimal growth of both plants, they were kept in direct sunlight and were placed in the following direction, 110 degrees east. After one month, the plant 's height was
The plant that was microwaved for 15 sec grew second for me it grew to (14 cm).The average height for Plant #2 was 3.08. The plant that was microwaved for 30 sec grew last it grew the shortest also it grew to (11 cm).The average height for Plant #3 was 1.9. The average height for all the plants combined was 1.14 cm. The temperature for all the days was usually different from each other on day it was 25 degrees C the next day it was 27 degrees C. The plant mostly stayed the same everyday it would go 1 up every 2 days.
While experimenting with the green beans, the seeds exposed to the organic plant food germinated within five days of the experiment and the seeds exposed to the chemical plant food germinated within six. The seeds that acted as the control had been expected to grow the least, however, it was surprising that they did not grow at all. Both the chemical and organic fertilizers proved to have positive results on the plants. It was also unexpected when the seeds exposed to the chemical plant food surpassed the height of the other experimental seeds after being shorter. The predicted reason for the increase in growth with seeds given Miracle Grow was because chemical fertilizers automatically store up the nutrients and disperse it constantly throughout
Have you ever wondered if music really affects the growth rate of plats, or if it even has anything to do with growth rate? In this experiment, we will grow two separate plants, one with classical music, and another with no music at all. The soil used will be the same in order for the outcome to be unbiased. The bean seed will be grown over a period of 6 weeks. Bean seeds are an easy plant to grow, and only require sunlight, warmth, soil and water. That is why we chose to grow it. The characteristics of the bean plant made it an easy pick for us. Bean seeds have similar growth patterns to other plants, such as corn. In fact, they are so easy to find and grow, that even a simple bean found in the grocery store can be fully
A plant is any of the boundless number of living beings within the biological kingdom Plantae, these species are considered of low motility since this species generally generate their own food by sunlight. They incorporate a large group of commonplace life forms including trees, forbs, bushes, grasses, vines, plants, and greeneries. In this task we are experimenting the relationship between light and plant growth by growing plants in three different lights which are red light, blue light and white light. As I stated above that plants generate their own food by sunlight. Sunlight can be broken up by a prism into respective colors of red, blue, orange, yellow, green, indigo, violet and white. All this lights have specific
14. At this point, a vacuum is to be created within the syringe to draw the air out of the tissue of the leaf disks. After this step, the experiment is really quite simple.
This lab was conducted to see what happens when black tea and water are used to enhance the growth of a radish plant. The hypothesis was that the plants that were given the black tea and water mixture were going to grow faster than the control plant (Devonte). The hypothesis was partially correct because all the plants grew substantially large closer to the end of the lab. Plant 2 (Bravo) started to wither away and die because it was over fed, and eventually drowned in water. The other two plants grew at a consistent pace and developed into healthy mature plants. To sum up, the lab that was conducted was successful in the sense that two out of the four plants grew rapidly without the use of enhancements or
There are many ways to obtain seeds to grow flowers in the springtime, but not all seeds were created equal. Sunflower seeds, for example, can be bought at a garden store in a packet for $1.5 dollars per 6 gram packet, but they can also be found in bird seed for $3.53 dollars per 10 pounds. This experiment intends to find if the germination of a store bought packet of sunflower seeds matches the germination rate of sunflower seeds obtained from a bag of bird seed. While both seeds will germinate, it is believed that the bird seed will not be as robust in growth as the garden seed, due to the fact that the garden seed is made to be grown, while the bird seed is made for consumption.
For the purpose of this experiment, we used mung beans. The goal was to prove that female bean beetles prefer full sized mung beans over half sized mung beans. From this experiment we hoped to observe bean beetles, and gain more knowledge on their bean preferences. This experiment is designed in a way that the female bean beetles must choose between the two sizes.
5. Weighing: Drag each ear on each of the plants to the weighing dishes to weigh its kernels. The yield of kernels of each plant is now on a weighing dish. Drag a weighing dish to the balance to read the weight of the kernels. Record the weigh of a Data Table. Proceed to weigh the kernel yield from all plants. Calculate the average kernel yield form each set of three identical plants that are grown under identical conditions from the same type of seed. Record the calculations on the Data Table.
