  1. Finding the effects of salt on germination
  2. The first half of the experiment
  3. The hypothesis

Finding the effects of salt on germination and growth of plants took twenty-two days of research. Each collection day the height, height of the leaf, color, height of the node, number of buds, and the number of the flowers were taken into account. Based on the original hypothesis stating that the 4.00 % of sodium chloride will not develop well and will most likely die was correct. Throughout the procedures the control group displayed the maximum of values each section should experience. Although the original experiment was destroyed after collection day six, data from other groups proved the hypothesis to be correct and carried on where the plants left off.

[...] The apex of the 1.00 group reached at 1.00 mm, and lowest at around .75mm. The average for this specific day was at 1.2 mm. On the other hand, out of the five plants originally planted in the group, only one displayed leaves. The leaf of this plant was only 0.5 mm high, which makes the average a mere 0.5 mm. The hypothesis also stated that the number of buds would also suffer in the 4.00 and 1.00 group due to the excessive amount of sodium chloride added within each day. [...]

[...] The control group took the lead, like it should have, after day six, and the 4.00 group took last place, again, like it should have. From the length of the specific plants, the length of the given leaves were taken into consideration (see figure 2). The leaves were measured from the tip to the stem in millimeters. Along with the rest of the experiment, the control group was to set the bar for the other groups in the length of the leaves. [...]
