Questions:


1) Which row was the best placement for the pansies, hydrangeas, and sunflowers? Explain your answer.
Though the flowers could have been positioned differently, the pansies would and should be placed in row one because they are accustomed to cooler temprature and indirect sunlight. The hydrangea would be best placed in row two because they are fond of a medium amount of sunlight. Last, the sunflowers should be in row three because they survive best with direct sunlight.
2) Describe the process of germination and plant growth you observed in the lab activity for a monocot plant. (Hint: Use data chart A to help with your description.)
Monocots have single cotyledons which have all of the endosperm, when germination begins it grows hair like roots and then evolves into a bulb and then the cotyledon begin to break open and remain below the soil, while the leaf growth reaches upward. Roots commonly grow a slightly downward in a tree structure, with many roots branching outward from the main bulb.
3) Describe the process of germination and plant growth you observed in the lab activity for a dicot plant.
Dicots have a plethora of cotyledons and they all contain endosperm, and then germinations begin with a root growth from the seed growing downward to provide more sub roots, then they grow into a hair like substance. It reamains adhesive as the stem continues growing up and then breaks the soil and develops leaves.
4) Which of your plants was a dicot? Which was a monocot? How could you tell? (Hint: Refer to the lesson for differences in monocots and dicots.)
The monocot plants were the hydrangeas because of the hair like roots and the growth in an upward vertical direction. The dicot plants were the pansies and sunflower because of the development of taproots.

1) What was the correct water level for germination? Why did this water level work best for all the plants in the garden?
The correct water level for what I used was around two centimeters and all of the plants were healthy.
2) What water level did you select for plant growth during your first attempt? Describe the observations of your plants at this water level. Based on your data, was the level you picked the best choice for optimum growth?
At first, I selected three centimeters, but it was too much water for the pansies to grow properly, and they drowned. Then I selected two centimeters allowing them to grow strong and healthy.
3) What pH level did you select for plant growth? Describe the observations of your plants at this pH level. Based on your data, was the level you picked the best choice for optimum growth?
I picked a low pH level and as a result, the hydrangeas were discolored. The pH leel that I chose was most likely not the best for the plants.
4) Describe your observations of plant growth in zero gravity.
I turned the gravity off and the plants became unhealthy without a gravitational pull or force. The plants had no force of attraction and subsequently grew in different directions.
