DARK v CLEAR
Brand new #ScienceWithGreg experiment! πŸ˜πŸ”¬πŸ§ͺ🌿 here we go, @kscape! πŸ€—

I read somewhere that, for water propagation, roots grown in dark or solid containers will grow faster than in clear or light-colored containers. So let’s find out! πŸ€”πŸ™ŒπŸΌ

I took these cuttings from my #MarbleQueenPothos about 4 days ago (naturally, I forgot to take first day photos πŸ™„πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ), and I’m gonna try to remember to document how it’s going every few days. It’s a #RootRace! πŸπŸ˜‚
#1: Marble Queen in solid ceramic vase
#3: Marble Queen in clear, light green vase (those little mustache roots were already there before it got put into water lol)

BONUS: #GoldenPothos cutting in a clear, light pink vase. Not officially in the race since the variety is different (gotta keep it fair!) but I think it’ll be interesting to see how it stacks up against the Marble’s cuttings.

All cuttings are currently in tap water!

Thanks for sharing. Let us know the results. 😊
Woo hoo!! Let me know how it goes! Personally, I've always wondered but I've never watched very closely.
Nice!!! I love this experiment.....can wait for results....keep us posted! 🀩🀩
Yes!! Excited to see the results!! Good luck!!! πŸ€žπŸ½πŸŒΏβœ¨πŸ’§
Looking forward to watching progression!πŸ‘
@saatwood that’s what I a@ doing now with several different plants. Good luck.
Thanks, science.
I love Greg’s science experiments! Fascinating! Looking forward to your update! All my propagations are in clear (or light color) glass so I’d rather know… Lol πŸ˜‚
As I've always heard the opposite, I'm interested in your outcome. πŸ‘€
Yes I read the same. But in clear containers I get to see the root action though
@saatwood wishing you luck. Keep us updated on the progress. I’m going the same thing with several different plants with golden pothos
@saatwood keep us updated please.
We are conducting experiments with our 5/6 students at the moment about different water types. One of the water types is salt water and that is hurting my soul 😰 maybe next time we have to do it I will try to convince the other teachers not to get the kids to kill plants do something like this 🀣
@mysugaredlife noooooo, omg 😭😭 those poor plants! πŸ₯Ί I think an experiment for kids that focuses more on growth would definitely be better!
