I came up with “How does magnetism affect plant growth?”. My hypothesis was that the plants with the most magnets would grow the most. I figured that plants have iron in them and iron is magnetic so if you put a magnet above the plant then the plant will be pulled up by the magnetism and want to stretch out.Procedure:Buy same size cupsBuy dirtBuy Wisconsin fast plantsBuy rare earth magnetsPut  cup ½ of dirt in the cups 4 with magnets and four withoutStart with two magnets and add one per cupAdd seedsPut cup ¼ of water every other day Take picturesMeasure after two weeks My hypothesis was very wrong.

So the question is “How does magnetism affect plant growth?”. My hypothesis was that the plants with the most magnets would grow the most. I assumed this because I figured that plants have iron in them and iron is magnetic so if you put a magnet above the plant then the plant will be pulled up by the magnetism and want to stretch out.                     Review of LiteratureI believe that the plant(s) will grow more with magnets because I assumed that plants have iron”All green areas of plants have iron. this is because these areas contain enzymes essential for photosynthesis which are primarily made from iron.” (http://www.answers.com/Q/Do_plants_have_iron_in_them) if iron is magnetic then maybe it can slowly pull the plant up.”Healthy plants are impossible without adequate intake of water and nutrients, and some studies show that magnetic exposure can enhance intake of these essential items. … This is an important characteristic when applied to heavily saline water.” this contradicts my last piece of research because it says it only opens up for essential items. It never says that it pulls the plant up. (https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/info/magnetism-and-plant-growth.https) “The reasons behind plant response to magnets are a bit harder to understand. It seems that magnetic force pulls apart ions and changes the chemical composition of such things as salt. It also appears that magnetism and plant growth are tied together by biological impulse.” (https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/info/magnetism-and-plant-growth.https)”In 1862, Louis Pasteur discovered that magnetism affects the growth of plants, when he was experimenting on the fundamentals of fermentation. He found that the Earth’s magnetism has a significant effect on the growth of plants. It was found that this concept could be effectively utilized in agriculture, wherein, plant growth could be stimulated by magnetically treating the seeds, water, soil and nutrients in the soil.” (https://www.buzzle.com/articles/the-effect-of-magnetism-on-plant-growth.html) Materials and ProcedureUse these materialscups (same size)Seed starting potting mix miracle growMeasuring cups with waterWisconsin Fast plant seedsRare earth magnetsUse the following steps to make the test.Buy same size cupsBuy dirtBuy wisconsin fast plantsBuy rare earth magnetsPut a ½ a cup of dirt in the cups 4 with magnets and four withoutStart with two magnets and add one per cupAdd seedsPut ¼ a cup of water every other day Take picturesMeasure after two weeks because that is the amount of time for the plant to grow   Results Amount of magnetsPlant 1 lengthPlant 2 lengthPlant 3 lengthPlant 4 lengthAverage growth42.25 in2.25 in2 in1.5 in4 in61.75 in1.5 in1.25 in2 in1.8182.5 in2.5 in2.5 in2.5 in2.5 in102.25 in1.5 in0 in0 in.93 in03 in2.5 in3 in2 in2.62 in           Conclusion, Reflection, and Application My hypothesis was apparently very wrong because my data says that the one with zero magnets grew the most. I believe  the relationships between magnets and plant growth is becoming more and more important as new way of understanding how plants are affected by their surroundings. This plant growth experiment opens new ideas in science by showing us how living organisms react to other natural things, however I do not believe I did this project correctly. I do not believe I did this project correctly because the plants with 0 magnets grew more I believe that one of the days I was supposed to water them I may have forgotten to water the rest. But I do believe I made a grave mistake meanwhile in the process of this project. I also wish I didn’t procrastinate at all. This can be used in real life to help in places that have badly filtered water because it can give the people healthy crops or food faster and safer. This can make healthy livestock so people don’t die from disease. This can also be easier because some magnets are cheap and can still be strong. They also don’t have to spend money on clean water they can just throw in water except if it is like toxic obviously.      Reference Listwww.answers.com/Q/Do_plants_have_iron_in_themhttps://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/info/magnetism-and-plant-growth.httpshttps://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/info/magnetism-and-plant-growth.httpshttp://www.knowswhy.com/why-do-magnets-affect-plant-growth/ https://www.buzzle.com/articles/the-effect-of-magnetism-on-plant-growth.html https://issuu.com/ijeabjournal/docs/47_stimulatory_effect_of_the_magnet/6  http://www.academia.edu/22013856/Magnetic_field_effects_on_plant_growth_development_and_evolution https://www.researchgate.net/publication/264826778_Magnetic_field_effects_on_plant_growth_development_and_evolution
