BSC 226 03 Lab November 222000 Germination and Early Growth of Three Angiosperms Instructor Introduction In this experiment we will observe and record the growing patterns of three different species of angiosperms corn bean mustards for 11 weeks At the beginning of the experiment we plant numerous seeds from each species in the same pot In hopes that at least two of each species would germinate After germination if more than two of each species grew we then picked the best two and pulled up the remaining ones so they wouldnt strip the nutrients from the others ones My general knowledge of the biology of seedlings told me that they have very tiny root systems and no 2 cell walls They also are very vulnerable to drought grazing and to over watering which produces at great atmosphere for fungal growth Because this experiment was controlled the drought and grazing werent a problem Being rasied on a farm I knew that the corn would grow the tallest compared with the beans and mustards I was undecided as to which one the beans or mustards would grow first If I had to guess I would say that the beans would most likely grow first because it needs to store nutrients for the upcoming seed production But most likely the mustards will grow first and germinate the fastest because they are the smallest seedling No matter which one grows first or last I do know that these species will not grow as good in the pot as they would in the ground because in the pot they have limited resources Methods Day one of the experiment I filled a 6 diameter pot seven-eighths full with Premix Premium peat-based potting soil Then I compacted the soil to the bottom of the pot Next I proceeded to plant three species of seeds Phaselous vulgaris or Bush beans Zea mays or sweet
