Seedsare planted and put under continuous fluorescent light for a period while data and observations are beingtaken. The plants grow very quickly because they are given a specific fertilizer pellet that aid in theirdevelopment. By performing this Wisconsin Fast Plant experiment we were able to see four of the sametype of plant grow in four different quadrants, each with a different number of fertilizer pellets present. Atthe end of the experiment, we discovered that the quadrants with the extremely low and extremely highfertilizer pellet number did not grow or produce as many flowers as the ones with an average number ofpellets such as 2 or 4; this in turn allowed us to confirm the hypothesis that we made before beginning ofthe experiment.INTRODUCTIONOriginating from decades of innovative research by Professor Paul Williams at the University ofWisconsin Madison, Wisconsin Fast Plants, Brassica rapa, are now used by millions of studentsworldwide in performing this particular research and experiment as well. Rapid-cycling Brassica rapa hasbeen designated the cultivar name “RCBr.” Anthocyanin is a purple pigment found in many plants,including Wisconsin Fast Plants. Anthocyanin is best observed when the plants are 4-7 days old. Look onthe stems and hypocotyls, under the cotyledons, and at the leaf tips.
