Project Details

Effect of the Baltic Sea Water to the Germination and Growth of Different Type of Plant Seeds.

Water problem addressed: Too little

Summary: In this project I used seeds of typical trees from Finnish nature and seeds of common garden plants. The seeds were planted every week and the last seeds after they had been in the sea water for three weeks. The planting was also done without affecting the seeds to the sea water, so comparison to normal conditions was possible. Tomato and radish seeds were able to germinate after exposed to the sea water, but salad seeds were not. However, it is difficult to conclude the ability of the typical tree seeds to germinate, because their germination in normal conditions was poor.
