Hi all, we were given an experiment to do over the holidays in reference to this dot point:

"Identify some responses of plants to temperature changes"

We're supposed to take a named plant and find out its adaptations / responses to temperature changes..
Now, does it necessarily have to be ambient temperature? Or do you reckon I can use water temperature which would be a looot easier to do?
Which plant do you reckon is the best for this experiment?
And... would repetitions be important or is it just a waste of time given I suppose it will take ~10-20 days to see definite response from the plant?

Sorry I know I should be asking my teacher this lol but I've no way of contacting her (shouldve done it before holidays i know) and I wanted to get a second opinion too. Thanks heaps!

Repetition would be a good idea. Maybe you can share data with friends or peers?

I reckon the best experiment would be to measure the transpiration rate in different conditions.

Probably too late but for future reference the eucalyptus tree is an easy one to study
