Introduction

´╗┐The Germinating Seeds Dec. 4 2012 Question/Problem: Which seed will germinate faster a corn or bean in tap water, salt water or sugar water? Hypothesis: I think the tap water bean will germinate faster than the corn seed tap water. I think the salt water bean will rot at the same time with the corn seed salt water. I think the corn seed sugar water will smell sweet and the bean seed will not smell sweet. Material: 3 bean seeds,3 corn seeds, soil, tap water, sugar water, salt water, 6 plastic plates,6 wet tissues Procedure/Method: 1. put water in all 6 plates 2. we put all seeds in different plates 3. We put tap water in one of the corn seeds and one of the bean seeds. Put salt water in another bean and corn seeds. Before we do any thing put sugar water in one of the beans and one of the corns. 4. ...read more.

All tap water corn seeds germinated except one that died. The sugar water bean and seed died by rotting and the same as the salt water. October,6,2007 Only one bean seed survived but it looks like it will die. All the others died except all of the tap water corn seeds and now it has a root (but one of them died). Results: on September 27the tap water bean seed started to open and it looked way better than the tap water corn seed and the bean seed got a little tail but it?s smaller than an ant. While at that time the bean seed and the corn seed (sugar water) and the bean seed and corn seed (salt water) were just lazily doing nothing. On September 28 the tap water bean seed started to look kind of unhappy except one of them grew bigger. ...read more.

Conclusion

Unfortunately the bean and corn seed (sugar water and salt water) died because of the liquid and by rotting. On October 6 all seeds died except the corn seed tap water that became like an adult and got a root. And one of the bean seeds (tap water) that now looks very unhappy like it was going to die. Conclusion: My hypothesis was incorrect because I said that the bean seed will grow faster or the corn seed will smell sweet with salt water and the bean seed wont. In this experiment I learned that the sugar water and salt water is bad because the liquid is sweet and salty well anyways it was wrong plus the acid was horrifying for the seeds. After 3 days all of them died except the tap water corn seed germinated and one tap water bean seed germinated. I know that only tap water and normal water is good for a plant. ...read more.
