Student Sheet 1 – Planting instructions for rapid-cycling brassicas


‘Fast plants’, or rapid-cycling brassicas, are a fascinating way to look at all sorts of biology topics, including plant growth, tropisms, floral reproduction, pollination, embryonic development, and genetics.

These small plants have been bred and selected to have a uniform, short flowering time (14 days) and grow well under in a small indoor space, with little soil, under artificial lights, perfect for the classroom.

This student worksheet introduces how to plant the rapid-cycling brassicas.

See Student Sheet 2 for instructions for caring for your growing plants.
