The purpose of this experiment is to familiarize you with the process of science and observe plant nutrition in action! This process often requires a few key components: detailed observation, asking a question, doing some background research, developing a hypothesis/prediction, experimental design, collection of data, and analysis of results. To do this, we will use plants that have been bred to go through their entire life cycle in a single month: Wisconsin Fast Plants. These plants require 24 hours of light each day and do best around $$70^\circ F$$ (see the seed packet for details).
