ASEXUAL REPRODUCTION
Title: Analysis of asexual reproduction
Aim: To observe the changes in plants after two weeks from asexual reproduction.
Hypothesis: I think that the vegetables and plants will continue to grow and would be even healthier without the natural habitat.
Material: As on page 210, a large onion, a potato, grass runner, leaf-stem cutting from germanium, leaf from jade plant and rooting medium.
Method: The following steps were taken; I. A gas jar was filled almost to the top with water and an onion was placed in the mouth of the gas jar so that its base was sitting in water. II. A potato was left in a dark cupboard. III. Lower leaves were removed from the leaf-stem cutting .A beaker was filled quarterly and the cuttings were placed in the water. IV. Some rooting medium was placed in a pot .Water was then added to the rooting medium until it was feeling moist. A three meter section from the leaf of the jade plant was cut. Inside the rooting medium the piece of leaf was required to be stood upright. V. A piece of the grass-runner was cut. It was ensured that the section we had cut, had at least one growing point, then a piece of the grass-runner was pressed into the rooting medium. VI. All of the plant parts were left undisturbed for two weeks; water had to be topped up over that time.
Result: As per table below;
