Does petroleum jelly affect photosynthesis?

We wrote up our investigation including our prediction, independent variable, dependent variable, controlled variable and the method we are going to use. Do you think petroleum jelly will affect photosynthesis?

Our light investigation!

This afternoon we looked at the seeds we had planted and kept them in different areas. We found out that the ones in the cupboard and by the window had grown. We did notice the one in the cupboard was grown and the one by the window has grown green. We then wrote our conclusion to our investigation on the findings we had produced. Why do you think one grew yellow and one grew green?
