For My science fair i am doing a project on tropism. I have read about experiments where a bean plant grows through a maze. My Plan is to create several models of a small maze with 2 routes to light, one distinctly shorter than the other. I plan on seeing if the plant goes the fastest route and how often. I would compare a couple diffrent factors, i have been thinking about small amounts of caffeine, or hormone treatment. i would need to do many tests, so i am worried that i would not be able to complete my experiment in just over 2 months. Are there any faster growing vine plants that i could use? do you have any suggestions to make my experiment better?Thank you very much for your time. -Jake-
