Bio Project Help

Post by nana5 » Fri Nov 02, 2007 1:48 am

Hey Guy's

Right about now im doing a project in biology on the effect of pure elements on plants,
Now i have it down to three or four so far, but what im looking for is some interesting chemicals
that would have a profound effect on plant growth, pigment, structural development ect. ect...
If you have knowledge in this field please respond,
(chemicals i think i will try, Nitrogen, Magnesium,phosphorous/potassium)
Thanks alot
-Mike

Well you already named some of the essentials. But I'm not sure if pure elements can be absorbed, for example your magnesium might start burning.

Interesting Burning magnesium, Yep probably wouldn't have come to that conclusion by my lonesome, but is there any other elements anyone would suggest?

I think you might have trouble finding pure elements, but if not, a very interesting one to use would be plutonium
