Does soda help plants grow?

No. In fact, repeated application of sugar solutions to the

roots of a plant will make the plant very ill and can lead to

fungal or insect infestations in the roots as well as actually

pulling water out of the plant, causing it to wilt and die.

Diet soda is less likely to cause such direct harm, but there is

absolutely no benefit the plant would receive from it.
