This is our protocol : We put lentils and seeds in glass jars. In the first one we put an old battery. We watered them three times a week. We placed them in the same place next to a window. The observation lasted 2 weeks.

2 weeks later : We can notice that germs grew in the same way (5 centimeters ) Then batteries are not necessarily fatal for the environment. Perhaps chemicals contained in batteries will incoprate in the land and they will be fatal for the nature. Then we will continue observing a month or more.

One month later : The plants with batteries have stopped growing while others are now 13 centimeters. So the batteries are not good for the environment !!
