If you obsereve what happens to the plant then you would see that the plant will grow. When watering a plant, everybody knows not to over water. However, too much sunlight can also harm plants. Plants can't absorb sugar since plants create their own sugars through photosynthesis.
A plant gets the perfect amount through water. Note that I have not misplaced the decimal point here. Most sugars are found in various life forms and are therefore not defined as animal or plant types. It depends on the particular plant as to how much sunlight is needed. Since writing the above I found another study. Nutrient Value of Milk If milk is a fertilizer then it is natural to ask how good it is. Why is it that when people disagree with science they immediately bring up Monsanto? During photosynthesis, plants use water and carbon dioxide to produce sugar and oxygen.
It is important to note: We also measured each plant at the beginning of the project to get the starting size for each plant. The table sugar I put in my coffee comes from either sugar cane or sugar beets. For that, you need a therapist. The results confirmed our hypothesis, because as we measured the plants during the experiment, we found that the plants using water showed the most growth, while milk plants came in third, and the the plants using Coke grew the least.

Im sorry you feel they have no preference. Soil already has the bacteria needed to break down organic matter. The nitrogen in milk is full of protein, but the bacteria and the fungi in the soil will break this down and some of the nitrogen will be released as nitrate or ammonia. You should have 2 different graphs for the data pertaining to plants growing with and without music on the same graph paper for a good comparative study. I would love to hear!

The complex molecules vitamins, proteins, etc will be broke … n down in the soil, then those nutrients will be available for plant uptake and subsequent growth.

Ever heard of cal mag deficiency? Therefore, this supports the second hypothesis. The powder is packed in two separate sachets to be consumed in the morning and evening. Microbes will degrade the larger molecules in milk into basic nutrients which plants can then use as a food source.
} Since this science experiment was for science fair, we needed to follow the scientific method. Blossom end rot, which is commonly seen in squash, tomatoes and peppers, is caused by a calcium deficiency. This experiment is one we did when Legoman was in second grade for his science fair project. If we were reporting this as a science fair and if you repeat this we would report what happened every day, with the measurements and the changes. We humans need to have nutrients which we get from the food we eat that helps our bodies grow and stay healthy.
