In class Mrs. Luciano is teaching us about plants. Our group’s question is What is the effect of no sunlight on a plant’s growth? My hypothesis is if I give my plant no sunlight then it will still grow, because plants outside do it all the time. Our control plant has water, sunlight, air and soil. Our manipulated plant has no sunlight.
This week I’m noticing a lot! My control plant is green with 6 leaves and 0 buds to 7 leaves and 0 buds to 8 leaves and 0 buds. The height is growing from 3.5 cm to 4 cm to 5 cm. My manipulated plant is yellow and wilting and has had 6 leaves and 0 buds to 4 leaves and 0 buds to 7 leaves and 0 buds. The height is growing from 6 cm to 7 cm to 7 cm.
So far I would say that the growth of the two plants compared is going back and forth, first the manipulated plant was taller, but the control plant was healthier. Now the manipulated plant is wilting and the control plant is growing much better. It was fun watching the plants grow and I can’t wait to watch them more!
