Many students think of the scientific method as a step-by-step process that all scientists follow in order. But real research is rarely so neat and tidy…it is really more of a research cycle or spiral because things you learn in one step can change your ideas about what you’ve already done or about next steps.
It is OK to change your thinking! We encourage you to go back and edit things you write in this section at any time as your ideas change. Just remember to ADD to your entries (put new stuff at the top) and don’t delete or overwrite anything you or other students in your group have written.

Other outside sources such as wind and different weather conditions can also influence plant growth. The time of year that plants are planted and grown is also another influence on their growth. If planted during the time of year where there is most darkness, the plant may not get enough daylight to fully develope.
