Default Botany

Well, botany is an interesting subject to began with... so try these...

1. The Effects of Scarifacation on seeds
2. THe effects of different soils (Which soil produces the most plants)
3. The effects of different climates on plants.

I would suggest doing scarifacation. I don't think that it is very common and is extremely fun to watch.

Hope this helps and good luck

Default Good ideas

Some other things you can try is putting candy into soil and seeing which one works the best. Or, you can but different things like baking soda or sugar into the waster that you water your plant with. Whatever you choose, remember to pick a plant that is easy to find information about, in case you need to make a report. Then it won't take as long to give background information.

P.S. 400th post!!!!

Well, for a challenge, you can try analyzing proteins in plants using MS (mass spectrometry if you have access).

Also, try looking at previous experiments on botany. Lots have been done to discover each plant hormone, especially auxin, the hormone that makes plants bend towards light.
