Plant Blog Post #3

We pollinated our plants for a few days with our fingers and q-tips and now we have a seed pod. At first I thought it was a very long pistil but my teacher told us that it’s a seed pod. We have 11 seed pods. Most of them are tiny though.

For our Controlled quad, it grew a lot. Even though cell 2, 3 and 4 are growing a lot, cell 1 it going to snap soon and are losing leaves. We didn’t break it because a few weeks ago, we thought it was going to snap but it didn’t snap. We have 1 seed pod in cell 3. It’s about 2 centimeters tall. We have many flowers in this quad. For our Manipulated quad, we still watered the dead cells but so far, it’s not doing anything. Cell 3’s tallest measurement is 8 centimeters tall.

I think what will happen next is our Controlled quad’s plants will grow a lot, cell 1 in the Controlled quad won’t snap and cell 3 in the Manipulated quad will still survive.
