||How does the amount of water given to a seed affect germination?
||The seeds with 10 drops and 40 drops will grow at a similar rate: sprouting the on monday (day three), and continuing to thrive. As for the seeds with no water, they will sprout in the beginning (possibly a small radicle) because they have been soaked, but will not continue growing because we won’t continue to give them water, one of the most crucial parts of growth. Finally, we think that the seeds that are fully submerged will sprout and grow at a slower rate, and maybe even stop growing altogether.
||We will be experimenting on Corn and MIllet seeds. Each seed will get 4 Petri dishes. One petri dish will be submerged in water, one without any water whatsoever, one that gets 10 drops a day, and one that gets 40 drops a day.
