Conditions of Use
The past few weeks we have been doing a plant experiment on rye grass. We watered the rye grass with salt water and sugar water. We used four viles to water the rye grass with salt water, another four viles we watered the rye grass with sugar water, and two more wiles we watered the rye grass with just regular tap water. We thought that the rye grass would grow with the sugar water and we didn't really think that the rye grass would grow that much with salt water, but we thought it would grow at least a little bit. The rye grass didnt grow for a few weeks, then the rye grasses watered with the sugar water started to grow mold and it kept growing more and more, the rye grass watered with the salt water made salt crystals on top of the soil, even the rye grass watered with regular water didnt grow. We researched on what the salt or sugar water effect is on rye grass. For the salt it said that some salt helps the rye grass absorb nutrients but it says that too much salt will kill rye grass. For the Sugar it says that it helps the rye grass grow but it still didn't grow.

I think using all those different waters helped to see what would happen so at least you could research to see the affects of salt water and sugar water. But i'm confused with why the tap water didn't work. Maybe it was the environment? But this was a great blog! i like how much information you added:)
