To perform the experiment with beans you need first of all the seeds, of course. Runner beans are well suited for it. Watch out! Eaten raw, bean seeds are poisonous! For the germination experiments you need one plant pot per experiment. You need a waterproof pen for labelling the pots. Moreover, a watering can and water are required to keep the plant soil moist which is also needed. Some of the plant soil should be dried beforehand. To exclude the light you need a carton, to exclude the air a solid, transparent plastic bag and to exclude the soil cotton wool. In addition, scales, a glass and a protractor are required.
