free write plant gro lab results

Referring to the Species #1 (Zea mays) result charts above, there are trends that emerged after weeks of feeding individual Zea mays plant species. Leaf development, height growth and weight were the three categories measured and compared. In all categories, PLANT-GRO scored a higher average number of leaves, higher stalks, and a higher average dry weight or mass. Although our experimental recipe did not show a large gap of difference in these categories, it was a noticeable trait or trend. It was also observed that plants numbers 3,6, and 5 in the experimental pot seemed to have necrosis defined by the browning at the end of the leaves. No necrosis was found on the PLANT-GRO corn plants. Not only did leaves 3 and 6 in the experimental pot develop necrosis, but they also failed to develop leaves off of the stalk.
Referring to the kidney bean result charts above, there are trends that emerged after weeks of feeding individual Phaseolus vulgaris plant species. Leaf development, height growth and weight were the three categories measured and compared. It is seen in the data that in two out of three categories, PLANT-GRO scored a higher average in were height(cm) and average dry weight or mass. The experimental pot, however, had a higher average height(cm). It was observed in the PLANT-GRO pot leaves 1 and 6 failed to develop full leaves. The experimental pot had the same issue of undeveloped leaves on plants 3 and 6, as well as some purple pigmentation on plant 5.
