The subject used in this research study is the Mongo (Vigna radiata) exposed to different colors of water cellophane covered in the cold frame as alternate source of different colors of light. The growth of thirty mongo seeds in terms of its onset of true leaf and number of sprouts and growth of five (5) mongo sprouts in terms of number of leaves, sprout height and biomass exposed to different colors of light were monitored for two weeks and compared. Results showed that some seeds grew on the third day and most started until the fourth day. On week one, the number of leaves from all the samples is the same and there is no difference. On week two, plants exposed to sunlight and yellow light have the most number of leaves and plants exposed to the light in which the colors were red, blue, and green have the least number of leaves. There was a significant difference between the controlled and experimental groups’ sprout height on the first week of observation and no difference on the second week. There was a difference between the biomasses of the plants from different groups.
After months of hardships and challenges, we wouldn’t be able to finish this study without the help of some important people. We would like to thank our classmates from III-ARGON for the all the help that we got during the times of need; our ever dynamic research and statistics teachers, Prof. Odyssa Molo and Ma’am Grace Liwanag who gave us knowledge and guided us through everything; our families who are just behind our backs along our journey and always ready to support us in one way or another; our class adviser, Mrs. Rebecca Flores for the support and considerations she made for us; our esteemed panel members, Prof. Charity Mulig and Sir Neal Lasta along with our research adviser, for helping us with our manuscript; our friends for the inspirations which uplifted our spirits in the middle of downfall and disappointments; and most especially our GOD because without Him, we wouldn’t be here. From the bottom of our hearts, we would like to give you our deepest gratitude.
I dedicated this research study to all those who were mentioned in the acknowledgement for keeping us going. But most especially, I dedicate this study to myself and my partner, Angela for doing all these things, for the sleepless nights, headaches, and other troubles we got just to finish this and be enrolled.
More power and may God bless us all.
I dedicated this research study to all my love ones and to those people who have helped us with the study....
