The abstract
People usually use water to water plants, it is because water has a natural pH value and it contains healthful elements for plants. Are there any differences if we use different kind of drinks to water plants instead of water? Because of this, we try to use different beverages to water the plant. They are Water (Control), Coke, Zero-coke, Beer, Coffee and Yakult. We have chosen 2 types of plants - Pothos Vine and Capsicum. For Pothos Vine, we have used 60% of water and 40% of beverages (100% water for water control). For Capsicum , we have used 50% of water and 50% of beverages (100% water for water control). Twice a day, we will water the plants and mark down their growing rate during experiment.
