Plant Growth

Does carbonated water affect the growth of plants?

Questions

  • Will carbonated water affect the growth of a plant?
  • Is there a difference between carbonated water and non- carbonated water when being used to water plants?
  • What's the difference between carbonated and non- carbonated water?

Experiment

For this experiment, I measured how tall two plants became over the course of 3 days after watering one with regular water and the other with carbonated water.

The dependent variable of this experiment is the type of plant.

The independent variable of this experiment is the type of water.

Hypothesis

If carbonated water is used to water a plant, then the plant will grow exactly the same.

The plant below was watered with regular water.

The plant above was watered with carbonated water.

Conclusion

After completing this experiment I've learned that it does not matter if you use carbonated water or regular water because they do are the same and do the same job.
