My son has led his own plant study through research, experiments and activities.
Plants can be grown from seed, but many can be grown from other plant parts as well. Temperature, moisture and amount of light needs to be just right for sprouting to occur. Each type of plant is unique. Experimenting with plants can be interesting, educational and enjoying.
Here are some unique plant experiments to try.
Sprouting a Coconut
My son chose the plastic bag method. Patience is the key. Coconuts usually sprout in one month, but can take up to nine months. The white dot is the sprout as it emerges from the coconut.
