Photosynthesis and Cellular Respiration
Rabinowitch in a standard work on photosynthesis, a 'considerable proportion' of photosynthesis is carried out by bacteria at the leaf surface, spraying with seaweed extract at this point may feed and stimulate them, and thus increase the rate of photosynthesis.
We now come to the debatable matter of antibiotics in seaweed -- debatable, not because there is any doubt that seaweed contains therapeutic substances, but because the precise nature of those substances is unknown.
How Does Seaweed Conduct Photosynthesis? | Sciencing
Things to remember!
When there is no light, photosynthesis can't occur since light is the activation energy needed for plants to convert carbon dioxide and water to glucose and oxygen
When there is no light, the plants would use up oxygen therefore emitting carbon dioxide bubbles instead.
The plants should be given a couple minutes to start initiating the process of photosynthesis before you start timing.
Reona and Michael have been growing aquatic plants for a while, specifically Elodeas which is a type of pond weed.
But for seaweed, how does it get its CO2
The rate alsovaries with the plant species and its physiological state.Photosynthesis is not a single process but consists of a number ofphotochemical and enzymatic reactions.
From dissolved CO2 in the water?
In the process of photosynthesis, it converts the sunlight that reaches it through the shallow water and it absorbs the nutrients through its leaves. The ocean being so rich for it receives all the run off of the earth, it contains all the essential substances such as minerals, vitamins and other trace elements. Seaweed extracts are now being marketed.

Most of the energyreleased both by the burning of fossil fuels and by the metabolism ofliving cells is given off as heat and must be replaced by thecontinued input of radiant energy from the Sun.The principal organic products of plant photosynthesis arecarbohydrates.
