Would More Water Show a Faster Growth Rate in Black Eyed Beans?

Zone guyana | nariefa added on October 19, 2011 | Answered

I have to do an experiment to show if giving a plant more water would show faster growth rate. I planted two separate pots. One has enough water and the other has a great amount of water. The one with more water showed a shoot after 3 days but the other plant showed no sign of growth.

At that stage, extra water helps to speed up germination because it helps to soften the seed coat faster, which makes it easier for the water to penetrate the rest of the seed and start the germination.
