Sunlight supplies the complete range of wavelengths and can be broken up by a prism into bands of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. Blue and red light, which plants absorb, have the greatest effect on plant growth. Blue light is responsible primarily for vegetative (leaf) growth Plants need four things in order to grow to be fully mature. But to just germinate they only need light, warmth, and water. This growth chart allows the student to record an experiment where they give some needs and deny some needs and observe how seeds germinate. The material includes the Growth C Group 4 (if needed): Reads other books about plant growth. I recommend From Seed to Dandelion, From Seed to Pumpkin, and From Acorn to Oak Tree by Jan Kottke, or From Seed to Plant and It Could Still Be a Flower by Allan Fowler.
