#2 Plant Blog Post

It has been 2 weeks since I talked about plants.  The plant looks so different because it grew taller it grew buds basically everything is different. But then there’s the manipulated plant… Which is boring… It’s exactly the same. Our manipulated plant is also dead… What Mrs.Mangan said is to try to bring it back to life and that is what we are doing. And all that means we are now using water instead of seltzer.

                Now why don’t we talk about the measurements to the controlled plant! At the beginning of the week it was 4 centimeters tall. Now the plant is 8 centimeters tall! And then the manipulated plant hasn’t even poked a little sprout. But my group and I have been brainstorming why it won’t grow and this is what we’re thinking… Maybe the flavoring in the seltzer is making the plant die. Now why don’t we talk about the color and the direction!

               So far the color is actually a really pretty light green. And the other thing is that 1 of the buds are purple but the other buds are green. And is it me or is that kinda strange… Well now that I think about it I bet it’s just the plant color. Again I have no idea what the plant is going to grow into. Now I think it’s time to talk about the direction of the plant. Every single plant in the quad Is going in different directions. One of the plants is growing up towards the light another plant is going to the side and the other are touching each other. That’s all we know sofar about the plants and I hope you injoyed  reading this book!

Plant Blog Post #3

My group and I have been working on our plants which you should all know if you read my other 2 posts. Let me give you a little info on our plants since 2 weeks ago… Why don’t we start with pollination. If you don’t know what pollination is then let me explain. Pollination is when bees butterflies or certain types of birds for the example hummingbirds all those animals and insects pollinate.  What pollination does is keep plants alive. Why you ask… Because when something like a bee takes its bottom and touches the pollen in the flower it mixes in with another flower and makes a new flower. We did that just with our fingers. If you don’t get that let me explain we used our fingers and touched the stigma of the flower and touched the other flower and soon that’s going to create a new flower.

                                 I think it’s time to talk about the controlled and manipulated plant now. Why don’t we start off with the manipulated plant! So far nothing… not even one tiny little sprout. The soil is dry… the plant hasn’t even grown! And if you ask me boring… Any way moving on. Now there’s only one more thing to talk about and that’s the controlled plant. Our controlled plant is dying. But at least it’s 16 centimeters tall. It has exactly 15 leaves. It used to have 24 leaves but it’s dying so the leaves are falling off. Our flowers are also dead… there as dry as a bone! Basically everything about the plant is dry and dead. Like the soil I’d say it’s probably so dry that it’s as hard as a rock! But there’s one thing that I find kinda strange… here’s the thing we’re pretty sure that it’s dead but it has huge pods. And when I say huge I don’t mean big I mean huge! My group and I are actually thinking that maybe the buds aren’t gonna grow if our plant is dead. We’re thinking that because the buds have been their for at least 3 or 4 weeks. That’s everything that has been going on this week hope you liked hearing everything about the plants!
