8th grade plant experiment!!!
my group and i did an experiment on rye grass. we wanted to know how different amounts of salt and sugar Water would affect the rye grasses growth. well, all it did was mold... even the plant without sugar or salt molded.
we started the project by taking 10 viles (5 for suger water and 5 for salt water) 1 vile out of each set of 5 had just plain water in it. well, none of our plants grew... though we researched and think we know the reason why!:)
so for the salt water, we believe that because the salt water Weekend the plant and caused waterstress to the rye grass even though it had plenty of water. We think the rye grass died that sat in the sugar water because the plant was over watered and couldn't absorbe it due to the presence of sugar unbalancing the plants ability to absorb moisture.
