Plant Growth Lab

Introduction For plants to carry out photosynthesis, they need carbon dioxide, light, and water. We are going to investigate how sunlight affects plant growth of radishes from the seed stage to plant stage.

Methods
1. You place ten seeds in each of the two separate plant containers.
2. The amount of soil, water, and temperature remain constant throughout the experiment.
3. The control group will have no sunlight and the experimental group will have sunlight.
4. Measure each plant on a weekly basis for 3 weeks (the first week should have no growth since the experiment is just starting).
5. At the end of the experiment create a chart in excel that shows average growth compared to treatment (sunlight versus no sunlight)
