this is a science experiment which can be duplicated!!!!! He gave me an A on the display....
NAME HERE and I became fascinated by hydroponics and the idea
that one doesn't have to get their hands dirty to be a great gardener, and if
your like us that's a good thing.
The idea of hydroponics has been around since the pyramids where
build, but in all these years it never seemed to catch on. It took about forty-six
hundred years before the first scientist took a look at hydroponics and
adapted it to grow crops, this was a professor at the University of California,
and the result was a 25 foot tomato plant that had to be harvest by a ladder.
Thus hydroponics was reborn and has been advancing ever since. Yet up to 5
years ago the home grower and generally the public didn't know about
hydroponics. It was only being used by commercial growers. But now it has
caught on, and resulted in this experiment.
When thinking about hydroponics one must think about the
applications of hydroponics. Not only dose hydroponics produce bigger,
better, and more healthier plants than the traditional dirt, but it can also be
greatly beneficial on things like submarines, space stations, off-shore oil rigs,
or any where else where dirt is hard to come by.
During this experiment we'll be looking for which plant life well do
best with hydroponics, by measuring which plant has grown the highest or
bushiest. We also well be looking for green and healthy looking leaves on the
plants. We have no idea what the results might be, so this should be an
