In First Class we’ve been learning about what plants need to grow. We devised an experiment to see what would happen if we took away one of the elements necessary for a plant to grow. We used cress seeds for our experiment.
We planted four pots of cress seeds:
Number 1: water and sunlight.
Number 2: water, no sunlight.
Number 3: sunlight, no water.
Number 4: water and partial sunlight.
These were the results:
Number 1: Grew well with tall green shoots.
Number 2: Grew tall but the leaves were yellow.
Number 3: Did not grow at all.
Number 4: Grew at angle towards the sun.
We are going to see if the yellow leaves turn green if we leave it in the sun for a few days. We’ll keep you updated!
