Please help me help my daughter with her project. We have only 1 1/2 weeks to complete the experiment of what is faster self or cross pollination? I have been to every nursery and spent many hours with her on how to prove this in such a short time. someone suggested corn. But we really just don't know where to start with the experiment? Please help....
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

THANK YOU SOOO MUCH,
Jeanette

I don't think you can grow any plant in 1.5 weeks to the point where you would have flowers to pollinate. Corn takes a very long time to mature...

I think you need to move to an experiment that doesn't involve letting plants grow-

Try the science fair topic selector on the science buddies page for some cool projects.
