Specimens of broad beans
20.8 x 3.7 x 8.1 cm (box) ; 7.8 cm (height of bottle) ; 3.1 cm (diameter of bottle)
Plastic box, plastic cylindrical bottles
One small rectangular plastic box, including six cylindrical plastic bottles. Each bottle contains a broad bean and antiseptic materials.
The growth of plant starts from seed. Seed contains enough food in its cotyledon for seed germination and subsequent growth. The embryo of seed includes germ and plumule. The germ will grow into stems and leaves, and the plumule will grow into the roots of plant. The specimens of broad beans are the teaching aids of General Studies in primary school, showing the germination and growth of broad bean.
