Our seeds are growing!

It has now been 7 days since we first put our seeds in the baggies (popcorn, pinto beans, and bird seeds). We sprouted our roots first (see previous post). Now, we are growing our leaves!

As you can see in the pictures, the popcorn has a single leaf blade coming up from each kernel (monocot). And look at it’s roots! They are red now! The pinto beans  has 2 leaves (dicot). The bird seed  was a mixture of monocot and dicot seeds. Take a close look at the different baggies. What do you observe? Post in the comments!
