Within the days of the first week, the 45-Watt Lightbulb set-up was able to produce green, healthy-looking seedlings. On the following week, more seedlings sprouted. Those that had already existed since the previous week grew more. On the third week, there was an addition of seedlings. The seedlings that have developed during the previous weeks showed no significant change in their heights. All seedlings remained green in color. With the 25 Watts light bulb, the plant grew a little. It didn’t grow faster than what is expected. The light was only sustained to the plant during the evening so it explains that the plant isn’t exposed too much to regular sunlight. The 10 Watts light bulb has provided light and heat to the seeds planted on the soil. Because of this, a week after a couple of days of providing light upon the planted seeds during night time, a sprout started to appear. On the second week, more sprouts became visible. As the third week came, the spouts grew longer and faster. The growth of the plant was similar to the growth of any other plants which are exposed to its basic needs which are water, air, space, soil and sunlight. Although, it seemed to have...
