Group #6 This is our mini blog. We have started terrariums. We have in our “Plantmen Project.”We had no idea about the color of the plant or the size of the plant. From the recent progress, the color of the plant is red.We will probably see more colors later. We have two bowls, one testing whether less soil will grow better, and one with more soil. In bowl A (More soil) we have one small plant starting to grow and one that is starting to rot and mold. In bowl B, we have a very large plant that is 12 cm tall. Our hypothesis is that the one with more soil will grow better than the one with less soil. Now, while we are observing it, it seems we were wrong. We will continue to observe to gather more data~Tegan, AJ, Marty, Logan
Group #4 We are starting on a terrarium for a science project in the classroom. We put 15 seeds in each of our two containers. We put one container outside and kept the other inside. We are giving each plant one teaspoon of water every day. We are measuring the plants growth and amount of soil in the container. We have not yet seen any sprouts or sign of life. Our variable is to see if the plant inside will grow much faster than the one outside because it is getting colder outside so we think that will affect it. We know it is getting colder at the Pete Dye Course, so we want to see how the temperature changes might affect our plantings there. ~Keenan, Adin, Levi, Xander
Group #5 Terrariums: We started off with little progress. Now in our graduated cylinder container we have nine sprouts. In our large round container, we have four sprouts. Everyday we add four seeds and watered the plant. In our round container and cylinder, our stems are white with green leaves. 3 out of 4 of our plants in the round container are standing upright. One is falling. 6 out of 9 plants in the cylinder are standing upright and 3 are on the ground in the cylinder. The soil in our round container is really moist. The cylinder’s soil is very wet. We have a few roots in our cylinder while we cannot find roots in the other. Our variable we are testing is ‘Will a container shape affect plant growth?’ So far in our experiment, container A has more success.~Cool Cosmos Club: Jackie, Riv, Amelia, and Kyndell
The other groups have just finished measuring and documenting results. We will give their results in our next blog.
