‘Fast Plants’ – Rapid-Cycling Brassica KitsResource
Our usual recommended suppliers no longer stock kits. We are currently looking in to an alternative supplier.
You can follow the complete life-cycle of these “fast plants” in only half a term! But they do need continuous fluorescent light. Seedlings appear within three days and the plants are flowering about twelve days later.
Each kit contains a comprehensive set of documentation together with advice on growing the plants, ideas for investigations, student sheets, teachers’ notes etc.
Great opportunities for investigations at the highest levels: AS/A2 projects, Advanced GNVQ assignments etc.
Contains normal (wild type) high anthocyanin expressing seed, and everything needed to grow the plants (except a system for continuous illumination).
Simple Genetics kit:
Contains normal wild type seed, the seed of a mutant called Yellowgreen and F1 seed from a cross between the normal and Yellowgreen mutant.
Mendel’s Second Law kit:
Contains seed of two mutants: Yellowgreen and rosette and enables Mendel’s Second Law to be tested.
Variation and Evolution kit:
Contains normal and rosette seed together with gibberellic acid and advice on how you can test Lamarck’s hypothesis inside one term.
