|Explore||From our experiences we have learned that the lettuce, radish, and bean seeds had sprouted in the bag, but the marigolds didn't sprout in the bag. When you want to grow some of your seeds on your own, you shouldn't do the marigolds. Outside of school, for some reason marigolds had always grown,...|
|Research Question||We know that it didn’t work for the marigolds. We noticed that the marigolds didn’t grow in the bag, so that is how we found the question. It fits because we knew from the marigolds that didn’t grow.|
|Predictions||The lettuce, beans, and radish seeds sprouted, but the marigolds didn’t grow. We will like to put some fertilizer in the marigolds so the seeds can sprout in the bag. We didn’t really have the 3 key elements and those elements are sun, water, and nutrients. The only elements we had for this...|
|Experimental Design||These are the materials we need for this project: seeds, gallon Ziploc bags, paper bowels, pins, spray bottle, and masking tape/painters tape. The first thing you need to do is get cool water in your paper bowls. Then you will dump your seeds in the bowls and then wait overnight. The next day you...|
|Conclusion||You can germinate your seeds in a bag! Most plants don’t need soil! Before this project we thought the seeds would grow about 3cm on average, but at the end the seeds had grown about 10 cm each! We can test many other seeds that produce leaves and flowers!|
As this research project is now in the final stages of wrapping-up, we wish to thank everyone who participated in this inquiry; the students, mentors, teachers and others behind the scenes. We appreciate all of your efforts and contributions to this online learning community.
Scientific exploration is a process of discovery that can be fun! There are many unanswered questions about plants just waiting for new scientists to consider, investigate, and share.
After the end of the session, we will be updating the platform and archiving groups and projects, after which time new updates/posts will not be able to be added to projects or groups. Please come back and visit the PlantingScience Project Gallery anytime to view this project in the future. You can search the Gallery by keyword, team name, topic, or school name.
Good bye for now.
The PlantingScience team
Amazing job, guys - I love your posters! Good luck with your classes, and I hope you stay interested in plants!
Hi team! I tried to reply to your post last week, but I don't see that message here; it must not have posted. Sorry about that!
I see you've done some updating on your page here, but I still don't see the comic you talked about. I'd love to see it! I've really enjoyed interacting with you guys as you work on your project, and I hope you had fun too. Maybe you can try growing something at home next!
Thanks for a fun few weeks. Let me know if you have any final questions as you're wrapping stuff up!
It’s great to see that teams from your school are wrapping up and posting conclusions. Enjoy the final stages of your project, and feel free to post any final comments or questions you have for your mentors.
We made a comic strip to explain the results of our experiment. Our experiment has been so successful lately. The seeds grew so much that we almost had to move them to a pot, they were about 30 CM at max . Saying that all the marigolds have not sprouted, but lettuce was about 5 CM each. Then the radishes got to about 10 CM. From all of that our group thinks our experiment was a success. Thank you for being our mentor and teaching us so much about plants. It may take a few days to post the pics!
Our plants have grown so much that the bean seeds are close to being taller than the bag. The are marigold seeds have not sprouted yet. Every lettuce seeds has sprouted. Two of been seeds are rotten.
How are your plants doing? We're super curious to see how they have developed over the past couple of days!!! Please keep us updated :)

Our experiments will continue to grow until the end of next week. Maybe when they are very big we might put them in a pot, but for now we are just keeping them in the bags.
Day 9 was a blast because they grew giant. They grew about 7cm! That was really crazy for our team.
Day 2 was amazing to our team! Our lettuce, radish, and bean seeds had sprouted and we had watered out seeds. That's how day 2 went for our team.
Our experiment is to ask, "Can the seeds can grow without any soil? Some people don't have access to soil so we are thinking this method could work or may not work.
Day 1, we had planted the seeds in our ziploc bags. We were thinking we will put 2 seeds each but we had put about 10 each in the ziploc bags, with no soil. Then we had put a wet rag in the bag to add some moisture to the seeds. That's how day 1 went for our team.
Hi Team! Thanks so much for the audio message you guys posted last week - I really enjoyed hearing from all of you! I just posted a recording of my response for you guys, too, so I hope you enjoy listening to it. I think you're going to have a really fun experiment!
Sorry it has taken a while for me to respond. I've been sick the last couple of days - so if my voice is a little quiet in the recording, it's because I still have a sore throat. I hope you guys are all doing well, and I'm looking forward to hearing more about your experiment!
