Sharing the Fruits of your Labour

When I first started growing the Sunflower seeds, I had almost lost hope because the seeds did not sprout even after two weeks. However, by the third week, the seeds sprouted, and the seedlings grew over 40 centimetres within a month. Now, it has grown beyond 140 centimetres. One of the plants even has three flowers on the same stalk.

Growing the Sunflower was easy; I only had to put it near a window, water it and add some fertiliser. Before planting the seeds, I was both excited and curious about the outcome. When I finally saw the flower buds, I was so happy! Growing my Sunflower plant may just be one of the best experiences of my life!

Two of my Roselle plants have flower buds, which is great! My mother and I take care of them and ensure that the leaves do not turn yellow. My mother uses fertiliser that has higher phosphorus and potassium content to promote flowering. I water them every morning except when it rains and add fertiliser regularly.

I was given the Roselle plant starter kit. Every day, my classmates and I will water our plants in school. Within a week of our planting, my friends' plants has started growing yet nothing was happening to mine. I started to get worried. I approached my Science teacher for help, and she gave me chilli seeds and encouraged me to try growing them. One week later, some of the seeds sprouted. I was overjoyed! My chilli plant is now growing very well and I hope it will bear fruits soon.

I was delighted to be given the Kang Kong seeds in my plant starter kit. 

My friends and I enjoyed caring for our plants every day. We were excited when the seeds started to sprout. When the holidays started, we brought out plants home. I transferred my Kang Kong seedlings to a bigger pot and continued to water them every day. It was so encouraging to see my Kang Kong grow bigger and taller every week. A few months later, the plant grew so big and tall that my mum and I decided to harvest it and added it to my lunch. Yummy!

My mum and I kept two stalks and we tried rooting them. Three days later, fine roots could be seen and when the roots had thickened, we transferred them into pots with soil. Alas, the remaining Kang Kong did not survive long this time. I was sad to see it slowly wither and die.

This was a good experience for me and I am now growing chilli and mint plants at home.

I enjoyed growing my plant and I learned that plants need just the right amount of water and care to grow. If the plant does not receive the right amount of water (too little, or even too much), it will not grow well.

My Roselle plant has grown so much taller! I enjoyed the Roselle tea (made from the plant’s seed pods) - it tastes like Ribena.

From this project, I have learnt how to grow a Roselle plant from its seed. Each day, I have observed that the seedlings have grown taller and bigger due to regular watering. Also, I understand that plants need sunlight, water, air and nutrients to grow. It was indeed a fun and enjoyable experience. I wish that I could plant a durian seed in my neighbourhood park!

One day, I thought that I would try growing some seeds. I wanted to see how they would grow into plants. I felt very excited when planting the seeds. When I saw my plants growing, I felt happy.

Thank you NParks for giving me and my friends a plant starter kit each. I enjoyed taking care of my Sunflower plant, and watching it grow.  I hope I can see the flower soon!

I have enjoyed growing the Roselle plant with my classmates. I have learnt that we should not put too much water, so that the plant will not die easily.
