Default Scarifacation

Try scarifacation(not sure if that's spelled right.)
It's when you do something to your plant seeds before planting them.
You take at least three peat pots(it's best to use about 4) and label them A, B, C, D. Peat pots are the kind that are brown and easy to tear through.
Pot A is your control... meaning that you will just plant the seeds without doing anything to them. Then, you separate the remaing seeds into three neat piles. You then do something different to each pile. Ex. bake the seeds in pile one... freeze seeds in pile two, etc. When done scarifying(spelling) you place each of the seeds in bags labeling according to what was done to them.
Then you fill the pots all with the same soil mixture. It's best to fill them 3/4 of the way full for now. You then place each seed in a different pot, Ex. Pot B would hold seeds that have been baked for a certain amount of time, Pot C. would hold the seeds that were frozen for the same amount of time. and Pot D would hold seeds that were cut in half. Pot A would be the normal seeds. Cover them the rest of the way and water them daily. Then you monitor them for a certain amount of time and record your results.

Hope this Helps
If you need help, turn to God... no matter what, he will be there always

Default uh...

well you could try seeing if music affects how fast/slow plants classical verses country or rap. That one's not really origional, and you would need a lot of time for your experiment if you want good results.
