Did the replicate dishes show similar numbers of seeds sprouting, and similar average radicle lengths? In bioassays, variability is inevitable because of the biological differences among organisms. Within the control group, for example, it is common to find some seeds that do not germinate, others that grow radicles only a few millimeters long, and others that reach 10 times this length. Try graphing individual data points for each treatment. The wider the spread between data points, the greater the variability within that treatment.
