  3. 3. Abstract<br />Plants rely on photosynthesis and nutrients provided in the soil. Fertilizers and other man made products can have a positive and negative effect on plant growth. <br />This experiment focuses on the components of different liquids and how they affect the plants ability to perform normal cellular processes.<br />
  4. 4. Introduction<br />My interest in plant growth is derived from my mother’s botanical interest and ability. She has a love for plants and an interest in how fertilizers and other additives can affect fern growth. I have learned a tremendous amount of information about plant life from her and I am therefore interested in pursuing plant growth as a topic for my science fair project.<br />
  5. 5. Purpose<br />The purpose of this experiment is to determine which liquids have a positive impact on plant growth. <br />Data from this experiment could be used to determine whether or not substances in the liquid provide nutrition for the plant or toxicity.<br />Determining levels of plant growth would be beneficial for nurseries and greenhouses that are looking to improve overall plant growth.<br />
  6. 6. Hypothesis<br />If four Boston Herbs are each given separately 30 ml of 40 percent diluted citric acid, 3:1 sugar and electrolyte solution, 4:1 club soda and sugar solution, and pure water, then the Boston Fern given the 3:1 sugar and electrolyte solution will show the most growth over fifteen days because the sugar and salt will provide a more nutritional additive for plant growth. <br />
  7. 7. Background Research<br />(Summarize background research paper here.)<br />(Create bullets or small paragraphs. Two slides are recommended.)<br />
  8. 8. Materials<br />Four potted Boston Herb Plants (same size)<br />30 ml of 40 percent diluted citric acid<br />30 ml of 3:1 sugar and electrolyte solution<br />30 ml of 4:1 club soda and sugar solution<br />30 ml of pure water<br />
  9. 9. Procedure<br />Place four Boston Herb plants in a well lit area.<br />Tape rulers to each of the pots or at an even level for comparison<br />Add 30 ml of each different liquid to separate plants<br />Repeat step 3 daily for 15 days. <br />Repeat steps 1-4 two more times in order to establish trials.<br />Record results in experiment log.<br />
  10. 10. Results (Average from three trials)<br />
  11. 11. Boston Herb Growth(10 days with specific liquids)<br />
  12. 12. Pictures of Experiment<br />(Pictures add credibility to your work as it gives a visual representation to what you are explaining.)<br />
  13. 13. Analytical Discussion<br />Based on the data collected from the Boston Herb plants over a series of ten days, it is apparent that the sugar and electrolyte solution provided more nutrition than the pure water and other substances.<br />It can be stated that the diluted citric acid was too toxic for plant growth, as Plant A diminished and died on the tenth day.<br />
  14. 14. Analytical Discussion (continued)<br />(Discuss other trends that you noticed in your results)<br />(where there any errors or problems with the experiment that may have altered or contaminated data? This is interesting and should be noted)<br />
  15. 15. Conclusion<br />(State whether your hypothesis was correct or incorrect.)<br />(What were some of your observations?)<br />(How would you change your experiment to make it more meaningful?)<br />(What was the significance of the experiment and what were some of the problems that you faced while conducting the trials?)<br />
  16. 16. Bibliography<br />(copy and paste your research paper bibliography here)<br />
