Center: Academia Británica Cuscatleca Center Number: SV001 Name: Roberto Rodriguez Candidate Number: Practical Title: Germination Experiment Number: Germination ________________ Equipment: 1. Ruler 2. 5 Beakers 3. 25 Beans 4. Water 5. Soil 6. Measuring Cylinder Method: 1. Put some soil in every beaker and make sure it is almost the same amount 2. Place 5 beans inside each beaker at the same level beneath the soil 3. Pour 10, 20, 30, 40 and 50 ml of water in each beaker respectively and keep watering them every 2 days 4. ...read more.


Results: amount of water (ml) Length of plants (cm) average length (cm) 10.0 12.0 12.0 7.5 10.5 20.0 18.0 19.0 16.5 17.8 30.0 - - - - 40.0 - - - - 50.0 - - - - Conclusion: The first thing we can see from the results is a boundary in the amount of water in relation with the beaker size and the amount of soil. In the table we can see that after the 20ml of water the seeds drowned and so they didn?t grew at all. ...read more.


Evaluation: I think that in general this experiment was carried out fairly in terms of the type of seed, thay were kept in a well lit place, all the beakers had the same soil and the same amount of it, etc. The problem was that the plants were drowned so we couldn?t get a good set of results, so if he experiment had to be carried out again I would set a limit of water to allow the plants to actualy germinate. ...read more.

    This is being changed by mixing it in with varying amounts of water to dilute the solution so it becomes weaker and therefore the concentration is varied. The dependant variable is the one that is to be measured as a result, which is the cress seed height.

  2. Mangrove Soil Analysis

    Label 6 sets of Agar plates. 6. For each plate half fill it with agar then add a sample of the appropriate soil sample using a pipette. Put the lid on and firmly sticky tape it shut. 7. Repeat this with the other 5 agar plates.

  1. Factors affecting Germination

    Disinfect hands before and after handling biological materials Keep area well ventilated and avoid inhaling biohazardous materials (particularly when handling seed raiser mix) Ensure that germination pots are not disturbed or damaged (e.g. by animals) In the case of rain germination pots should be taken to a sheltered location Results Refer to table and pictures attached.

  2. Investigation into Cress Seeds

    I will draw continuous variation graphs for each cultivar and compare the variations. I would have six results in total.
