Light Box for Botany

LittleBit and I built a light box for Botany today. It was not difficult and the instructions listed in the Apologia Botany book were easy to follow. We used a cardboard box, aluminum foil, socket base, extension cord, glue, and one CF light bulb. We used paper pots we made for seeds. We also put a few in a clear container of water to be able to observe the seeds sprouting and the beginning root system.
