How do plants grow in different conditions
Plant growth experiment
For my elementary school (fourth grade) science fair, I did an experiment about plant growth. I took baby spider plants, cut from one adult plant, and subjected them to different conditions. One grew in water, another in water with a little bit of sugar, another in water with more sugar, and one in salt water. The latter two died. The one in a lot of sugar grew mold. The first did OK and was the control. The plant with a little sugar in its water grew better.
The project went well. I was happy to see how sugar and salt affected plant growth. I really enjoyed seeing my peers' projects at the fair. I would definitely do it again. In fact, I pursued research in college and enjoyed sharing that with my peers!Barry's Response
- Kind of reflects how our diets affect our own health, doesn't it? I wonder what your later research projects
were about. Thanks for your input, Katie.Search
