Conclusion

  1. The conclusion of the experiment is that radiation does affect seed germination and plant growth.
  2. Some plants from seeds exposed to radiation did grow but to less height and did not have as many leaves or stems as plants from seeds with no radiation. This may be because radiation slowed down plant growth rate. (More radiation = smaller plants).
  3. However some plants with or without radiation did not even grow. This may be due to the age of the seeds. The seeds from some packets may have been stale.
  4. The hypothesis stating that plants exposed to no radiation would grow larger than plants exposed to radiation was proven true.
