I wanted to know the growth difference in plants when different plant foods were being fed to them. I believed that if I used Miracle-Gro the plants would grow taller than the others, I believed this because Miracle-Gro seems to be the most popular nationally known plant food in the United States of America. I hoped that this investigation would tell me what plant food makes plants grow
The following experiments with plants can be used progressively through the plant units in the K-6 science curriculum. They are all based upon growing seeds in a sterilized baby food or Snapple ® jar filled with 3/4 inch of unflavored gelatin to which a few drops of liquid house plant fertilizer has been added for nutrients.
Of all the organisms in the natural world, green plants are the only ones that manufacture their own food. This process is called photosynthesis and begins when light strikes the plant's leaves (both sunlight and artificial light can power this process). Cells in the plant's leaves, called chloroplasts, contain a green pigment called chlorophyll which interacts with sunlight to split the water
The purpose of this experiment was to find out if radishes grow taller and have more leaves if grown hydroponically using the water culture method and grown hydroponically using the flood and drain method, or if grown "conventionally" in potting soil.
Changing the pH of the soil, helps make different chemicals in the soil more accessible. The world is filled with many plants which thrive in many climates. Each species has it's own needs and preferences. The multiple types of soil, each supporting a different pH, grow different plants. This test is designed for the growth of strawberry plants because of the massive amounts of sunlight needed
Science kits, science lessons, science toys, maths toys, hobby kits,
science games and books - these are some of many products that can
help give your kid an edge in their science fair projects, and develop
a tremendous interest in the study of science. When shopping for
a science kit or other supplies, make sure that you carefully review
the features and quality of the products. Compare prices by going
to several online stores. Read product reviews online or refer to
