Overcrowding of Plants

The purpose of our experiment was to determine the effects of overcrowding on Navy Bean plants. We determined this by growing different pots of Navy Beans plants with different numbers of seeds in each pot. Measurements were taken every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for height, number of leaves, and color. After the plants had grown for three weeks, averages of height of the plants, numbers of leaves, and the overall color of the plants were calculated. We found that the fewer number of Navy Bean plants which were present in a single pot, the healthier the plant would be. Health was determined by the height, number of leaves, and color. Therefore, overcrowding Navy Bean plants results in a less healthy plant.
