Greenhouse in a Bag

This is a super way to see how seeds sprout and grow.

You'll need:

A small Ziploc bag
3 wet cotton balls
2-3 large seeds ( beans work best )
clear tape

What to do:

1) Place the wet cotton balls in the Ziploc bag with the seeds placed against them.
2) Seal the Ziploc bag and tape it to a window where it will receive plenty of sunlight. Your seed should begin to sprout in 3-5 days.
3) After your sprouts grow at least 1 inch, you can transplant it in soil, so the plant may continue to grow.

Note: Make several greenhouses in a bag, using different types of seeds. Watch the seeds to see which ones sprout first and how fast they grow.
