About the Experiment

Experiment Title: Which Seed Will Grow Faster

Conditions:

  1. Dampened paper towel placed in zip lock bag with beans lined up on bottom.
  2. Dampened paper towel placed in zip lock bag with beans lined up on bottom.
  3. Dampened paper towel placed in zip lock bag with beans lined up on bottom.
  4. Dampened paper towel placed in zip lock bag with beans lined up on bottom.
  5. Dampened paper towel placed in zip lock bag with beans lined up on bottom.

Experimental Predictions:

I think all of the seeds will show some evidence of growth, however, some more than others. I think the amount of growth may depend on the type of seed, the consistency of the seed, the size of the seed, and the age of the seed. I think that if the bean has a wet consistency it might possibly grow faster than any of the other beans that have a drier consistency.

 

Experiment Methods and Procedure:

Materials: zip lock bag, seeds (garbonzo beans, sugar snap peas, wet red beans, mung beans, adzuki beans, dry red beans, and sweet corn), paper towel,water, stapler, and heat lamp. I observed the beans after a week of being in a zip lock bag and opened for 15 minutes each day prior to me observing them.


Results and Conclusions:

My predictions were accurate in the fact that the Wet Red Bean was the fastest growing bean. I had predicted that a bean with a wet consistency may possibly have an advantage in its growth over other beans that have a drier consistency.
