In my experiment, I am testing the different solutions you can use to increase a seed's germination. The ability to germinate is the process in which a seed begins to sprout. I am using water, Dr. Pepper, Epsom salt solution, and vinegar as variables in my experiments. My hypothesis is that Dr. Pepper will produce the lowest rate recorded, because of the solutions acidic qualities. I believe this, because in forests, acid rain can produce catastrophic damage to the Forest's plants. Using this knowledge, I predict that Dr. Pepper will grow little, if any seeds at all.
