||We know that basil is used for flavoring when cooking. The leaves are used for healing.
||Will warmer temperatures make basil germination rates higher?
||We are predicting that basil will have a higher germination rate when the seeds are placed into a warm area.
||We are going to put the basil seeds in 3 separate petri dishes. One at room temperature, and the other two at increasing temperatures.
||Basil seeds grow best when the temperatures are lower and when they have a lot of moisture. Our data presents a few possible conclusions. One conclusion is that we did not use the necessary amount of water, either too much or not enough. We also did not put a rubber band on top of the lid to keep the moist air inside the dish and keep the dry air out.
