for the light experiment i was going to set up a plant in water (in a flask) and submerge it under a lamp for 24 hr covering the plant with a plastic bag to measure water loss, i was also going to use a plant set up the same leaving on the windowsill and one under a box For the temp one i was going to set the plants up the same - measure the transpiration rate when placed next to a heater, one at room temp and one in a fridge (all will be under boxes so no light or air will affect results : IS THIS THE RIGHT WAY TO SET UP THE EXPERIMENT _ WHAT ELSE COULD I DO TO IMPROVE IT??? do u have any other suggestions for the experiment???? - it has to be performed in the class room under controlled conditions. Thankyou for your time
