After observing our sprout experiments in the classroom, we sent them home this week. We brainstormed what we could do with our sprouts at home:
- plant the sprouts in the garden in soil
- plant the sprouts in a pot
- keep the sprouts in the cup
- feed the sprouts to some chooks
- put the sprouts in the compost
- put the sprouts in a worm farm
- design and carry out an experiment on your sprouts
What did you decide to do with your sprouts, and why? Visit this page and leave a comment when you have something extra to report in the next few weeks.

I have decided to leave the sprouts in the cup for 2 more days and then I am going to plant them in a pot. I am going to put the pot outside in the sunshine. When they get really I’m going to plant them in the garden.
I like the idea of putting them out in the sunshine Callum. I hope you keep us up-to-date with the progress. leave more comments here or email in photos.
I decided to put half in the light and half in the dark. I put the dark one in my brother’s desk cupboard and the light one on top of the desk. I want to see if it can grow easier in the light or dark.
That sounds like the perfectly-designed experiment Asha. Let us know what happens by leaving more comments here.
Evary day I water my sprouts I give it different amount of water. I have not taken my sprout out of the plastic cup. I didn’t put any soil in it, I’m just waiting to see what else might happen.
That is a great experiment design Tom. Let us know what has happened by posting here.
I chose to plant my fenugreek sprouts in the soil in the garden because I wanted to follow the lifecycle of my sprouts growing into a plant.
That sounds really interesting Rianna. I have never seen a full-grown fenugreek plant. I wonder if you will be able to collect more seeds from it?
My sprout is growing. And some times I forget to wash my sprout. My sprout is growing leaves most of the seeds have sprouted. I think that my sprout is 17cm toll. That means that there are 43 more cm more to make a m.
My sprout has got about 2 leaves on each sprout. most of all the sprouts have sprouted. I think that my sprout is 17cm that means that the sprout needs to grow 83 more cm to make a m. some of the seed are taking a long time to sprout.
Thanks for the excellent maths in this Austin! Do you have a theory as to why some of the seeds are taking longer to sprout?
I am going to plant my snow pea in the garden. because my experiment will need a snow pea seed. I am going to see which plant will grow faster’ watermelon or a snow pea.
That sounds like an excellent experiment Ethan. For your experiment, what will you change and what will you keep th same?
I will keep my sprout in the cup because my dog reggie will dig it up
That’s a good idea Marcus. Sometimes animals seem to know which plants are special to us!
I decided that I would put my sprouts in our garden because we haven’t got very much space in side and to teach me to look after my plants. It will also teach me how to put sun flowers in the ground.
That sounds like a good plan Makayla. I wonder if they will grow better in the ground than in the cup?
I planted my sprouts in a container and i have been watching them grow. I have stopped watering them as I found out that if you give them too much water they come out of the soil and float in water! Now they are growing really fast as dad took some of the water out and they have settled back into their soil. I used to think that my seed wouldn’t grow but they did. Soon they will be big sunflowers.
Thanks for the tip about watering too much Chelsea. I am looking forward to seeing photos when they have grown into sunflowers.
My sprouts are in a bowl in the kitchen. They are growing by the window. The sun keeps them nice and warm.
That’s sounds like a fantastic place for them Jaxen. I wonder if they will do better there than in our classroom?
I have decided to leave my sprouts in the cup. Tomorrow I will plant them in the pot together with my grandma’s plants to see if they can grow together and bigger.
That seems like a good idea to put them in with other plants – easy to look after. What type of plants are your Grandma’s Josh?
We fed some to my pet hermit crabs but they didn’t eat them. They prefer apples.
What an interesting experiment with the sprouts and the hermit crabs, Evan! I wonder if they like sprouts you buy from the shops?
I have watered my sprouts regularly. They have grown taller now. I have given them to my grandparents so they can plant them in their garden. I will see what happens after they are planted in the soil.
That sounds like a great idea Hannah. Grandparents are very useful for caring for plants! What type of seeds did you select?
