P3 Seed Growth Experiment

In P3 we have been carrying out seed growth experiments to help a boy called Kasper who wrote to us looking for advice. He lives in a country which only gets 12 hours of sunlight a month and wanted to know if his dad’s vegetable growing business would be a success. We decided to duplicate these conditions for some seeds, leave them for a month and see what happened. We also did some control seeds in other conditions.

Today we checked the seeds for the final time and had some interesting results. The seeds which grew the most were the seeds with sun and water. However, ALL of the seeds grew- going against our predictions.

The seeds which were growing with water but no light (Kasper’s conditions) grew but we noticed they didn’t look healthy. We are going to suggest he tries growing the vegetables but that he sells them for less money as they may not be the best quality.
