How Do Different Liquids Affect Plant Growth?

A popular science project when investigating the germination and growth of plants, water will of course be the best liquid and will triumph over any juice or soda. This is because it has the right combination of elements - hydrogen and oxygen - which will increase anaerobic respiration, where water and carbon dioxide is turned into energy and oxygen is a waste product, the reverse of the reaction which occurs in humans. Perhaps an investigation between different sorts of water with different purity levels, such as distilled, tap and stream water, would make results more interesting than using juices of different concentration. To take accurate data, define your methods of measuring flowers before starting the experiment. You may want to rely solely on height, number of leaves, number of flowers, thickness of stem, or any other factors that may affect the specific plants you choose. Make sure to choose fast-growing plants for your science experiment, which include marigolds, sunflowers, radishes, beans, cucumbers and watercress. Make sure to also use seeds from the same package in your experiment as a control so that the type of liquid is your only variable. Standardising the time of your experiment is a way to display your plants as they grow, and use exactly the same outside conditions, again as a control. Make sure to photograph your plants at each stage of development, and attach one from each stage and record your data live as it happens.

Yes, they do , tap water helps them grow, but hypertonic liquids like soda kill them off quickly.

I think they do but only acidic liquids like beer, but less acidic liquids which are more watery like juice might make the plant grow.

Yes, definitely! Some grow at high salt content type of waters while others die.. And some grows the other way around.

Different liquids effect the growth of plants in different ways. There can be numerous types of experiments that will help you prove that. However, here is a link for a simple experiment, which will help you out.

Plants only grow with water because there is no chemicals in it you can only use different types of soil

Yes some of the liqds affect the plant growth but not all of the liquids that you use some of the liquids that you use can kill the plants that you are trying to frow for a school project.

This does work I have tried to grow  vitamin water and it work....I think is because it wasn't a Carbonated beverage like soda....When I used soda it started to grow mold and I think that was because it had sugar...And sugar can be harmful to plants!!

I read that the plant needs sugar to grow. The sugar helps the plant make the fat, protein, starch , vitamins, and other materials it needs to grow.
