Grown Textiles sample

To test out how well the seeds will grow on the bamboo wadding, I made two samples testing out patterns and, by leaving one set of seeds uncovered, how the damp paper towel over the seeds affects germination. After a couple of days, the second sample showed signs of germination, whereas the first was unchanged. The uncovered seeds did not germinate at all, but the rest of them sprouted and grew very well. The seeds latched on tightly to the fibres which will be good for my final piece, when I have to put it on and the seeds are vertical.
