Essay about Energizer Plant
The hypothesis of this experiment was to see if the hydroponically grown
plants would be stimulated by electricity causing the seed to sprout
quicker than normally expected.

browning on the plant expecially around the edges of the
leaves. Plant A's growth was retarded. The larger of the two
plants in Pot A had a two-inch root system and a half-inch root
system and a one-inch system. Both of these plants were weak.
The following results were noted for Plants B:
On day four, the perlite was pulled back from the seed. The
seed had begun to grow a root system. On day eight, the tip of
the new plant was pushing through the perlite. On day ten, the
seedlings were removed from the perlite for observations. There
was little browning on the plants. Plant B's growth was healthy.
The larger of the two plants in Pot B had a three-inch root
system and a two-inch stem. The smallest had a two and a
half-inch root system and a one and three-fourths inch stem.
Both plants looked strong with thick stems and good root
The hypothesis was disproved. However, the experiment did
show that plants respond in a negative way to electrical
stimulation. The plants moved away from the electricity. That
caused the plant to move from its water source making the
root system weak and the plant growth stunted. This also infers
that farmers who blame electrical wired for a crop's lessened
produce may be correct.
Another conclusion drawn from conducting this experiment
