The 5th of July we started with our seed germination on the Practical Skills class. This work was done in pairs. I worked with Juana Zufriategui and we focused on the variable of oxygen. One of us let the flask with no lid so that oxygen can pass through and the other with the lid on. After a couple of days we get to the conclusion that is possible for lentils to grow without oxygen. However, is very difficult for them and it’s likely for them to die.
I had to let the flask with the lid on and only one of the four lentils germinated. Moreover fungi grew up all over the three remaining lentils because of all the humidity. This is a picture of my lentils at the end of the experiment:
