Soil contains the nutrient plants need to grow. Sand does not.
Sand will not grow plants better than soil ,although in some cases sand will be used under controlled conditions.
sand and potting soil
well it depends on what kind of plant it is some grow better in sand and some in soil
It depends on the plant, but normally all plants grow well in soil.
It depends on what plant you are referring to, as there are millions of plants out there; some grow better in sand, and others grow better in soil.
because soil has more nutrients in it which is better than in the sand
Clay soil. In my region of Texas, we only have clay soil, and we can grow plants just fine!!!! Sand is in West Texas (I have visited), and there aren't ANY plants there.
They don't grow better in sand they need more attention than in soil. They don't grow better they will survive but need more attention than in soil.
Depends on the plant but most, not all grow better in soil because of the richness. Plants can grow next to rocks but some in rocks.
It depends on the plant, but most houseplants (with the exception of cacti) will grow better in a potting mix (soil) made for container plants.
its for my school science project
It would depend on the plant. Some plants grow very well in sand but can't grow in topsoil, however most plants would grow better in top soil.
Well I just did an experiment on this and the plants in sand grew and bloomed, but over all the plants that grew the tallest, and bloomed were in soil. -Margaret
plants grow better in soil
The soil will help more because it has the most nutrients.
Very few plants will grow in heavy clay soil and not many will grow in sand. Plants need organic material in the soil to enable the roots to penetrate and to nourish the plants, so the more humus soil contains, the better most plants will grow. Plants also do not thrive in very acid or highly alkaline soil. Most plants prefer neutral or slightly acid pH. Sne45: I think clay-like soil, nor do I think plants in sand can grow.
Potatoes grow well in sandy soil. Many plants can be grown in water. Hydroponics is the study of growing plants without soil.
plants grow better in soil because I
It depends on the plant, as some grow better in sand and some grow better in soil. However, as a general rule, most seeds one would encounter grow better in soil.
plants like cotton plant grows in sand soil
No, plants usually grow the biggest in soil because it contains more nutritional elements under technical conditions. However, there are certain plant species which have adapted to the special conditions needed in order to grow in sand and therefore, these plants can grow bigger in sand. Moreover, there are "plant-social" reasons, e.g. when a plant is resistant to salt can grow better in sand than others which are not, so it grows alone and without "competition" and it grows better.
Sand has no nutrients and vitamin C but soil does.
Bean plants being terestrial grow better in soil not in water.
Plants actually grow better in water than soil. I had a project about it.
