A plant species has two alleles for stem length: Long (L) and Short (l). The Long (L) allele exhibits complete dominance. Based on the following Punnett Square, what is the probability that an offspring will be homozygous recessive?

HINT
Each genotype shown in the Punnett Square has a 25% chance of occuring. If the same genotype appears in more than one square, the probabilites are added:
1 square = 25% probability
2 squares = 50% probability
3 squares = 75% probability
If the same genetype appears in all 4 boxes, 100% of the offspring will have that genotype.
