My group has been studying our plants.The control quad has still been growing and it seems like they are starting to droop. Our control quad’s plants also has started to grow buds! Our plants are growing to at least 5 cm tall. Some plants grow taller. The plant is green like usual. The plant is growing straight up but then soon they start to fall down and touch the soil. It seems wrong. But overall I think that the plants are doing very well! The change since the start was that the plants are growing really tall and really well. I never thought the plants would grow this tall and this well.
My group has realized that the experimental quad’s ( cell 1, 3, and 4) have started to grow! Cell three is doing great out of all the rest. Cell 3 and cell 1 are the only ones growing so far. Cell 3 is about 2 cm tall. Cell ones plant is very small so my group can’t measure that plant. The plant is still green like usual. It is growing straight but it is also starting to droop. The change since the start was that in the beginning there was no plant at all, but know there is a little plant in cell 3 and cell 1!
Based off of my results, we found out that the sand actually isn’t soft enough to suck the water up. I believe it’s because when we water the plant the sand tightens up so it’s hard for the plant to push itself through the sand. I think that because if you imagine you are at the beach, when the water touches the the sand, the sand is hard so you can’t use that sand to build a sand castle.
