Lupine Seedling

Our Lupine project is really starting to take off, many of the plants are beginning to sprout their first true leaves. A lot of the lupine seeds had different things done to them before planting which is causing them to all grow at different rates such as; The seeds that had a small incision cut into them then soaked before planting which have grown 54 sprouts up to this point and are the only ones showing true leaves. This led us to plant 98 more due to their high rate of growth. The seeds that where scratched with sand paper grew 14 sprouts. The seeds that where put in the cold for one week have grown 9 sprouts. Finally the seeds that where soaked only for 12 hours before planting have grown 8 sprouts.

We can’t wait too see all of these plants to grow in to beautiful flowers.
