affect plant growth?
Plants grow by using water and the sun to make food. We
are trying to find out if different types of detergents
will affect the growth on a plant. This experiment, if
done properly, will give us the answers we're looking for.
We think that the detergents will affect the plant growth
and kill the plant since the detergents material is
poisonous to most living things.
1. 4 of the same plants in little pots
2. 3 Different types of detergent.
3. Area with sufficient sunshine
First of all, make sure that the plants are all the same
and are all fresh and not withered. Take the first plant
and put it in the area where you are doing your
experiment. Water it and let it stay. Next, take the 3
detergents and mix half a cup of detergent with half a cup
of water and pour the mixtures in each of the remaining 3
plants. Do this for the next 7 days and record your
results below after the 7th day.
Record And Analyze Data:
After testing for 7 days, the experiment showed that the
three plants that had detergent material in them died. The
poison killed the plants just like we thought in our
hypothesis. The plant that didn't have detergent in it
lived and was in good condition.
