||plants go through an interesting process called germination in which they start out as a seed and sprout with the appropriate requirements and weather. They also go through 2 other processes called photosynthesis and cellular respiration which both help the plant grow and spread more seeds to repeated the procceses.
||What amount of water does it take to germinate a plant?
||If a plant is getting a stable amount of water then the plant will be healthy because plants need water for a process called photosynthesis in which they make there food (Glucose) and uses it to make ATP (energy).
||Each day while the seed is planted are routine is too water the pea seed bottles with the amount listed on the front ( 3 teaspoons 2 teaspoon 1 teaspoon ). Then record the speed of germination (1 day 2 day 3 day etc.) until that plant has sprouted out of the ground (Germinated).
||The more water a plant gets the faster the plant seed will germinate because when we gave one of are plant seeds 3 teaspoons then gave two others 2 or 1 teaspoons of water and the 3 teaspoon germinated faster than the other two.This happend because water is an essential part of a life cycle of a plants life. It acts as a ingerident to food and energy for use.The more food and energy the longer the plant will use.
