Our Data & Conclusion
Based on these results we can conclude that the type of liquid you hydrate a plant with does make a difference. We can also say that even thought Gatorade has special ingredients like electrolytes and added sugar, it isn't very healthy for a plant. In this case, we have proved that out of 2 different liquids, water is the best liquid to hydrate a plant with.
1. We could run a lab with different plants using Gatorade to hydrate them to see if Gatorade just affected Chia seeds or if it really is bad for plants.
2. We could once again plant Chia seed and use different liquids to hydrate them to eventually find which kind of liquid is best for plants.
