TOPS Green Thumbs - Radishes (part 3)

To read about the very beginnings of our 'radishes' please go to PART 1 and then PART 2.


DAY 8 - Monday

The only thing we were supposed to do on that day was to go back to the notes from last week and draw a SPROUT GRAPH. Our graph turned out a bit different from the one expected by the authors of the book - our seeds have sprouted much faster and much better (thank you Taiwan for warm and humid weather!).



DAY 9 - TUESDAY

It's time to reuse the box that was used for observation of seeds and sprouts during last week. This time we have to make a hole in the middle of the bottom side and cut off the lid. Then we need to place a paper towel through the hole and set the whole box on top of a jar with water (in a way that the paper towel will be submerged in water).

Paper towel pushed through a hole
on the bottom of the box.

The box with paper towel
is placed on top of a jar with water.

Inside the box we placed another piece of paper towel,
with circles labeled as above, plus 4 new radish seeds.

Everything needed to be watered
and the box covered with plastic foil.


DAY 10 - Wednesday

Today we finished two of the earier experiments - "Four Environments" and "Day and Night".
We moved all the sprouts used in these experiments to our newly prepared greenhouse-box.

The sprouts from the dark (top) and light (left and bottom) jars.


Sprouts from Four Environments experiment -
- cool+wet (top left), very wet (top right),
warm+wet (bottom), dry (not shown,
because there was no change to the seeds).
Sprouts were moved to the labeled circles in the greenhouse-box:





And now we have to wait to see what happens, which sprouts will grow the fastest and strongest.
