We found out that our set up doesn’t work so we are going back to the drawing board. Solutions concludes to tying our samples with wire instead of line. We figured that the line untied over the week from the friction of the currents and the plank of wood – we had a bad week in New York.
We are going to finally set up our experiment, where we will create a weigh that will hold our samples down in the Hudson River as it’s tied to a plank with line that’s tied on the other end to a fence. As our samples stay afloat we hope to have them bloom.
