The most effective way to sprout seed to we can start growing are plants

Why did we decide to do this project?
We decided to do this project for the future Millside community garden.
Our goal was to find the most effective way to sprout seed to we can start growing are plants.
This way we hope that we will be able to apply what we learned to are garden in the future so we can have a more successful harvest

Slide1

By Shauna Turner, Hannah Brown, Sophia Draper, Annica Howe, and Kayla Blight

Inquiry: Seed to sprout

Slide2

Does lettuce sprout faster in water or soil?

What water content does lettuce seeds sprout faster in?

Does the temperature affect the speed of sprouting?

Does lettuce sprout faster in soil when assisted?

Slide3

Does lettuce sprout faster in water or soil?

Hypotheses:

Shauna, Sophia, and Hannah

: If we sprout lettuce in water and in soil, then the plants in water will sprout faster

Annica and Kayla

:

If we sprout lettuce in water and in soil, then the plants in

soil will

sprout faster

Slide4

conclusion

Hannah, Sophia and Shauna

: our conclusion for the main question is that we did find that the seeds in water sprouted faster in paper towels in plastic bags

They look to be growing faster than the ones in the soil

We also believe that we got more seeds to sprout in the water then the soil

We are not sure if it is because of the different seeds or because we kept them wet throughout the whole process.

Slide5

What water content

does

lettuce

sprout the fastest in? (Hannah and Shauna)

Hypothesis: if we sprout lettuce seeds in tap water, fish (aquarium) water, and pond water , the seeds in pond water will sprout the fastest, because we believe that it has the most nutrients.

Slide6

Conclusion for first attempt

The

fish water germinated

the fastest followed

by tap,

and

pond followed later.

We

believe that  in the middle of the process they dried out. Then when we watered them again they began to grow

mold

We think this severely decreased the speed of

germination

of the seeds.

We

know now that if you are going to sprout seeds in a paper towel on a plate then you need to tend all the time so that they do not dry out

.

Slide7

Does the temperature affect the speed of lettuce growing? (Sophia)

Hypothesis: If I sprout lettuce seeds in a cold temperature and in a warm temperature, then the lettuce seeds in a warm temperature will sprout faster

Slide8

Conclusion for first attempt

Lettuce in soil with heat sprouted the fastest.

The

lettuce in water and paper towel both heat and no heat didn’t sprout, and neither did the lettuce in soil with no heat.

This

is what I expected, because heat is one of the main factors of plant growth.

The

reason that the lettuce seeds in water and paper towel didn’t sprout, is that they kept drying out

.

We would water them each day, but when we would get to school in the mornings, the paper towel would be dry

.

This caused some of the seeds to grow mold.

Slide9

What water content does lettuce sprout the fastest in

?

Conclusion for second attempt

In conclusion

we have found that the problem

that

 we thought was  causing  the mold and

which made

the plants  stop  growing was

correct. They did get to dry at one point which stopped the growth

W

hen

we redid our 

experiment,

 we found that when we put the paper towel in plastic bags they stayed damp and  never got close to drying out like the paper towels on the plates

did

W

e

found that the seeds in the fish water grow the fastest we think this is

because of all of the

the rich nutrients that are

in the

fish water

.

I

n

our hypothesis we 

thought

 that the pond water would have the best water content of growing seeds

.

Now

we 

believe

 that the pond water we got has too much run off making it pollution overwhelming the nutrients that should have been there.

Slide10

Does the temperature affect the speed of lettuce growing? Conclusion for second attempt

Like my first attempt, the lettuce seeds with heat sprouted first.

The difference this time though, was because we kept the seeds in plastic bags, they never dried out.

Not only did the seeds split this time, but they have now began to grow small green sprouts.

The Lettuce seeds in the cooler temperature also sprouted and began to grow, but they sprouted later, and they haven’t grown as large as the seeds in heat.
