Inspiring projects: the influence of three soil types on the height of a chickpea plant, the growth of the stem and the colour and number of leaves

Soil type influences the growth of plants, their height and their health. To carry out these tests, we will use a chickpea plant and three different types of soil. We will control the growth, as well as the height, development of the stem, and the colour and number of leaves. We will then draw conclusions about these three different types of soil.

Teachers notes:

When planting in the pots, add an extra potted chickpea plant for each soil type so that if one dries out we will have a spare one.
