As was expected, the plants that shared a pot with nine other seeds had less optimal growth than the plants that shared a pot with two other seeds Both the clovers and oats had less optimal growth in the pots with with ten plants than those with three plants. This was likely due to the smaller distribution of resources in the soil for the ten plants than the three plants of each species. Statement of support or rejection of hypothesis: Due to the results, it was concluded that less competition led to more optimal growth, which in this case was higher biomass, more branches of clovers and taller oats. This was not surprising, considering the prior knowledge of an organism’s need for resources such as light, water, and nutrient content in the soil (Fruleux, et al. 2016). It was also known before the experiment that a higher competition within a population would result in less resources per individual and can have a direct impact on nutrient absorption (Coelho, et al. 2016) It should be noted that the plants were placed in very
