The Onion Experiment part 2

Here are more pictures of the onion experiment.  The kids are busy trying to predict if we will get onions from all three groups.

This onion has really been on a growth spurt.  It is the one that we used the cut bottom root portion for the experiment.

The roots just continue getting longer.

Here is our whole onion that had little roots to begin with and had sprouted leaves at the top.  The roots are really starting to grow!

The top has added a bit of growth.

This is the top cut from an onion.  The leaf has grown downward into the water.  We are starting to see mold growth on the onion and no root growth.

The leaves on top have not grown.  The children don't think this onion will grow a new onion.
