Factors Affecting Seed Germination
What do plants need to grow? In this experiment, you’ll explore one of the most important factors affecting seed germination by finding out whether the amount of water a seed receives changes how quickly it germinates.
A seed contains the beginnings of a new baby plant. To grow, this plant needs water. Water helps a plant with different processes inside the plant. It allows the plant to move nutrients from the soil into its cells.
