The Growth of Pomogranite Seeds
Purpose: Pomogranites are one of the most
prized, yet mysterious fruits of the world today. Spoken about in many
great pieces of literature, however little has spoken about how to grow
a pomogranite tree.
Hypothesis: The pomogranite has vitrually
hundreds of seeds per pomogranite. It is the hypothesis of this experiment
that each seed has the potential to grow. Therefore, if seeds are planted
and watered regularily, then a pomogranite tree should be produced.
Equipment: For this experiment, three pomogranite
seeds will be required, three plastic cups, water, soil, pen paper and
tape to label to cups and a paperclip.
Procedure: The first step is to label the
cups A, B, and C. Place soil into cups B and C. Place a regular singular
seed into cup B, and water. For cup C, remove the outer flesh from the
pomogranite seed, (The Red stuff that taste good) such that only the little
inner seed remains, plant in the soil and water. Finally with cup A, take
a seed, and stick it with the paper clip, so that the seed can stay on
top of cup A. Fill cup A until water level reaches the seed. Water periodically
and observe results.
Observations: Cups B and C were allowed
to grow for a month and a half. (Cup A was eaten by a bird).
|Above is pictured cups A, B, and C going from left to right. Cup B
in the middle is the only to show possible signs of pomogranite life.
Conclusion: From the experiment results,
it appears that just taking a seed from a pomogranite and placing it into
the ground as is will grow a pomogranite tree. Of course this comes under
the huge assumption that the plant in B is actually a pomogranite tree.
(This page will update as knowledge comes available) Furthermore, the undesireable
results of A may spurn futherer experimentation on the effects of high
speed projectiles on birds.
Additional Information: Futher research
into this topic shows that the way most people reproduce a pomogranite
tree is by taking about a 3 foot branch off a tree, and placing it into
the ground exposing 6 inches. The reason is that even if a seed were to
grow, there still would be a chance that it would not produce fruit. Clippings
off a fruit bearing tree, will, eventually produce fruit.
Unfortunantly for the hypothesis of this experiment,
the plant believe to be a pomogranite tree, was not so. The imposter plant
was in actuality a common garden weed. In reflection to the hypothesis
and conclusion, pomogranites will not grow in the conditions as prescribed
in the previous experiment.
