Making Plants Grow (page 2)
I learned that the same kind of seeds do not all germinate at the same time – some are faster, some are slower and some do not germinate at all. Different kinds of seeds germinate in different times.
Questions for Further Research
- What if I used seeds that are not beans?
- Would the germination time be different if I did this at a different time of year?
- One seed is planted, but how many more seeds will that new plant have?
