||Do different real life products (motor oil, soap, and ice melt) affect the amounts of gametophytes to hemaphrodytes and/or the mass of them? How can we impact the haploid generation of Cferns?
||We predict that the oil will die, but our salt will thrive because the information we gathered that the salt has products in it which are not harmful to plants, animals, and humans.
||Once we have the ferns in the petri dishes we will be adding 2 drops of our salt, soap, and oil solutions to each separate dish and continue this pattern until we end our project.
||Conclusion: In all the control thrived, the soap was never able to grow, the salt seemed to have little to no effect on the ferns, and the oil killed all the plants that it came into contact with.
