Who knew seeds could grow without light!

Over the last quarter we have spent lots of time learning about plant tropisms. We learned that plants respond to different stimuli; light, gravity, water.

We did an experiment with mustard seeds, a damp paper towels and baggies. After placing our mustard seeds on a damp paper towel and into a baggie, we taped our bags into the INSIDE of our cupboards. We wanted to see how geotropism and hydrotropism worked. You can see that the seeds sprouted and the roots grew down and the stems are growing up. This is true for geotropism.

Isn’t it interesting that they were able to grow without light?
