What'll Happen to the Wattle?!!
Our science students have started germinating seeds that spent 6 months on the International Space Station. They have set up both “Herbs in Space” basil seeds and “What'll Happen to the Wattle” seeds. They will be investigating the effects of microgravity on these seeds and collecting growth data as well as scent strength for the basil seedlings.
It is very exciting to see that all the Space seeds have sprouted before any of the Earth seeds indicating some effect of microgravity on the Space seeds. It might also be that we have received a bad batch of Earth seeds to grow. Only time will tell what happens to both the Wattle and Basil seedlings in the next few weeks.
