The following experiment was made to determine which substrate (cotton, seed starting mix, soil, tap water, and earthworm humus) is the most effective for the germination of cantaloupe, radish, jalapeno pepper, sunflower, and basil in a controlled environment Seed germination determines continuous plant production necessary for human survival with regards to the supply of medicinal plants, feed for animal grazing, and food security. The substrate is known as the foundation to which an immobile substance is attached. In simple words, the substrate is the surface or material from which an organism grows or obtains its nourishment.
