'Science Project Final Paper'
'Breaking Down Growth' (reserve the right to change)
To see whether added chemicals (nutrients) help to speed up seed
I feel that there are/should be certain things that could be added to
an 'unknown' plant to stimulate its growth.
I will be trying to add different amounts and kinds of fertilizers to
several different temperatures. If this experiment is successful, than we
should be able to tell which fertilizers/ nutrients/ stimulants to add to plants
to speed up growth.
The materials that I will be using (at least most of them) are listed
below. As you will see I have decided to use different types of plants/ seeds.
- 5 beans (kidney, pinto, etc.)
- at least 1-1 pint jar
- distilled water
- several liquid plant fertilizers (5-10-15)
- 1- gallon plastic milk/ water jug
- any kind of felt marking pen masking tape
- paper towels
- 2+ straight sided drinking glasses
- 2+ sheets of black construction paper
(The materials listed are for the experiment itself.
I reserve the right to add
other materials as needed as I go along, which will be noted.)
-The controlled experiment shall be 1 or several plants grown without
- The variable in this experiment shall be the many plants grown with

The design of my setup will be basically many plants. What I will be
doing is waiting for half of the plants I grow to be about 1 inch...
