Blogpost - Biological Environment: Growing Healthy Fast Plants

View This Resource

Read this blog post for background information about the relationship between the biological environment and life processes and systems in Fast Plants.

Growing healthy Fast Plants is easy if you understand how the environment can affect growth and development. Three broad categories of environmental factors influence how an individual plant matures through its life cycle: 

1) the physical environment,

2) the chemical environment,

3) the biological environment. 

Based on this information about standard conditions for optimal Fast Plants growth, one could easily design a wide variety of controlled experiments. Questions naturally arise while reading about optimal conditions that could be investigated by designing an experiment to how varying one condition affects growth, development and/or reproduction.

This blog post is part of a series explaining how key environmental factors–physical, chemical, and biological–can impact the growth of Wisconsin Fast Plants.
