The Effect Of A Fertilizer On The Growth Of Plants Experience Essay



Like each living thing, plants also need nourishment for their improvement and development. Fertilizers are one of the fundamental wellsprings of nourishment in the dirt. It also improves the resistance of soil because of a high wellspring of food. Plants need a total of 6 essentials for them to be healthy. They are the following; Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium, Magnesium, Sulphur, and Calcium. Coffee grounds are successfully used to improve soil, fertilize plants, and eliminates bugs. We can find coffee grounds like Nescafe Nescafe 3in1 Strong Instant Coffee (2g) in supermarkets or the leftovers from brewing coffee in a coffee shop. The coffee ground contains 1-2% nitrogen, 0.3% phosphorus, and 0.3% potassium along with a variety of micronutrients. So here is the problem:

Is there a significant difference between the growth performance of mung bean (Vigna 

Radiata or used to be known as Phaseolus aureus Roxb) in soil with the coffee ground as fertilizer and the growth of mung bean without fertilizer in terms of its physical property such as:

Height of the plant 

Number of leaves

Number of growing plants in 7 days

The fertilizer

Height of the mung bean in cm

➔ Place of Experimentation ➔ Size of the gardening pot ➔ Amount of soil per pot

Hypothesis

There is no significant difference between the growth performance of mung bean in soil with the coffee ground as the fertilizer and the growth of mung bean without fertilizer in terms of its physical property such as; the height of the plant, number of leaves, and number of growing plants.

Materials

1 packet of mung bean

2 pots

Enough soil to fill 2 pots

Tap water

1 pack of nescafe 3in1 strong instant coffee

Notebook, ballpen and ruler

Procedure

First, get 2 bottles of Wilkins distilled (5 liters+1 free liters) and then cut them in half. Get the bottom part 

Second, put a hole or drainage in the pot so that excess water can come out. Because if there is no hole, your plant may drown.

Fill the 2 pots with an equal amount of soil. Put the Nescafe 3in1 instant coffee (2g) in the first pot. 

Water it for the soil to be wet.

Put 35 mung beans in each pot them allow them to germinate.

Then observe the height, number of leaves, and number of growing plants for 7 days. Record it in your notebook.

The hypothesis that there is no significant difference between the two has been proven to be wrong. The plant poured with coffee ground grew taller than the plant without fertilizer since coffee contains potassium, phosphorus, and nitrogen, which are known to improve plant development.

Recommendation

The researcher recommends that future researchers should experiment for longer than 7 days.

The researcher suggests the future researcher to try putting coffee grounds in various plants.
