Erin Marteal was in today to show us a brief overview of plant propagation, which is a way to reproduce plants asexually. She brought in a cool variety of plants and we actually got to practice rooting new plants. Step one: Sarah loads up on the root-starting soil. Step two: Select yor favorite varieties. Step three: Sam shows off his new plant. Kodie C. even did a cool experiement where he used a root-growing hormone powder for the plants in one cup and the other cup he rooted normally (the control). We'll see how that works in a couple weeks.
