Abstract: Gibberellic acid is a plant hormone that is used to stimulate growth and fasten the germination of plants. When Gibberellic acid used on plants, it produces bigger and fuller leaves following by elongating the stems. This experiment was designed to determine the effect that Gibberellic acid will have on the growth of a seed germination. As performed in class, three types of radish seed were treated with Gibberellic acid to see the effects the acid will have on those three seeds. During the treatment plan, the three seeds received a different amount of acid and water five times a week. For instance, Seed A got approximately 2.5ML of Gibberellin acid, seed B got 5.0ML, and seed C got 10ML, following by seed A getting 17.5ML of water, seed B getting 15.0ML, and seed C obtaining 10ML of water. However, based on this treatment plan, seed A and B showed no growth. While, the seed that consumed more acid, which was Seed C showed rapid growth. In this case, the only possible explanation for this surprising result could be that the Seeds …show more content…

Since the minimum concentration of GA did not produce the greatest change in height for the radish plant, the hypothesis was not supported. The most possible explanation for this unusual result could be that the Seed with less amount of GA and water was not treated correctly and at the proper time. Another case could be that the amount of GA and water used was not enough or perhaps during the treatment plan, some group members might have forgotten to water the plants as scheduled, which could have affected the overall growth factor and health of the plant. Due to this outcome, more precautions and full responsibilities should be taken to obtain a better result in the future
