Will Plants Survive when Watered with Different Liquids?By SierraMy experiment is on how plants are affected when watered with different liquids. I had four Viola flower plants.
Plant A- watered with regular water
Plant B- watered with sugar water
Plant C- watered with apple juice
Plant D- watered with orange juice
My hypothesis is that Plant B will grow best.
This was plant A before I started my experiment. It was 12 cm.
This was plant B before I started my experiment. It was 12 cm.
This was plant C before I started my experiment . It was 10 cm.
This was plant D before I started my experiment. It was 11 cm.Day 2Day 2
Plant A was surviving well. It was 12 cm.
Plant B was still surviving okay. It was 10 cm.Day 2 Continued
Plant C was starting to die. It was 9 cm.
Plant D was still doing okay. It was 10 cm.Day 5Day 5
Plant A was growing normally. It was 12 cm.
Plant B was starting to droop. It was 9 cm.Day 5 continued
Plant C was half dead already. It was 7 cm. Plant D was starting to grow fungus. It was 9 cm.
Day 10 (last day)Day 10
Plant A was growing normally. It was 12 cm.Plant B was very droopy. It was 7 cm.Day 10 continued
Plant C was totally dead. It was 5 cm. Plant D was mostly dead and smelled terrible. It was 8 cm.My hypothesis wasnt correct but I did prove something, that a plant doesnt survive well when being watered with a substance that contains glucose.My Bibliography "How does sugar water affect the growth and development of a plant?"
