Back in high school science class, we were all given a broad bean to grow from a damp cotton ball in a small plate.
After two weeks we brought back our plants to exam them, and see how different conditions helped or hindered the grow.
Some drowned, too much water.
Others were burnt from too much sun.
While others had the perfect amount of water and sun and grew remarkably.
Just like any type of seed or plant we need the right conditions to flourish and grow. Too much or too little water we can become stunted, lackluster or die.
