The purpose of this experiment is to figure out why different liquids affect plants differently. To do the following experiment you need to 1. Put one plant in each pot of three pots 2. Label one pot A, one pot B & one pot C 3. Water plant A with 1 ½ tbs. of diet sierra mist 4. Water plant B with 1 ½ tbs. of tap water 5. Water plant C with 1 ½ tbs. of orange juice 6. Water and measure the plants each day. Too many nutrients can make a plant die out. Some liquids with nutrients are milk & orange juice. Milk contains protein, which contains nutrients. If too many of these nutrients overlap, they can cause the plant to die. This is the same with the orange juice. Sugar can affect plant growth too. Over expressing Arabidopsis in plants reduces growth in plants. Due to hypertonic states of different liquids, some juices and sodas can kill plants. This experiment will look at how soda, juice, and water will affect the growth of plants. Diet sodas do not kill plants like regular sodas do. To keep data on how tall the plants grow each day I have been putting the heights of each plant in centimeters on a chart. I check the heights each day and water the plants with their given amount of liquids in the procedures. The liquids I am using are diet sierra mist, tap water and orange juice.
