Instructor(s): Joseph Bradshaw
Course DescriptionThis course will look at familiar seeds and their early growth into seedlings (with experimentation with the seedlings). You will grow the little mustard known as Brassica, the Wisconsin Fast Plant. It is called the fast plant because it goes from seed to seedling to mature plant with flowers and fruits, and back to seed, in six weeks. In order to get the plant to grow satisfactorily, you must have a grow-light (shipped as part of your materials) that can be on 24/7 (24 hours a day all week) for the entire six weeks, and you must get the seeds planted on Day 0.
The goals of this course are to...
You will keep journals with growth data, answer questions from the instructor based on your journals and the manual, and participate in discussions. If you are already familiar with Wisconsin Fast Plants, you can either participate in this class with more experimentation with your plants.
