How does salt effect bean sprout growth?
it really depends on how much salt is used ... but the salt actually stuns it's growth .. and if too much salt is put on the plant it will die very quick

Yes Salt alone is not harmful to plants. However, how much salt a plant gets can affect it. Plants die when you water them with salty water because they lose water and shrivel up. Cells in general gain and lose water by the process called osmosis . I'm sure you've had the experience of getting wrin…kly skin from spending too much time in the bath. This is because your skin cells absorb water and swell up, so your skin wrinkles. Try to imagine what's inside a cell in your skin. In the cytoplasm , or 'cell juice', there are lots of proteins, small molecules, and dissolved substances swimming around a watery medium. Compared to your bath water, which is mostly water with only a small amount of soap dissolved in it, the concentration of stuff in your cells is much higher. We say that your cytoplasm has a lower water potential compared to bath water. That means the bath water is more watery than the inside of your cells. Water tends to move from more watery to less watery places. Therefore, water moves into your cells and they swell, causing your skin to wrinkle.The same thing happens with plant cells. When you water a wilted plant, it absorbs water very quickly. This is because the plant has lost water, and the insides of its cells are much less watery than the water you're pouring on it. Therefore, water moves into the cells until it swells up and becomes turgid . As you may know, plant cells are enclosed by cell walls made of cellulose, which is the stuff that makes up paper, so they don't swell until they burst, like animal cells might. You can imagine a turgid cell as something like a balloon, that's been blown up until it's stretched and firm. That's why well-watered plants are upright and firm, while dried-out plants are soft and bent-over.So now we get to your question. When we water plants with salty water, the salty water is less watery than the stuff inside the cells. The cells are at a higher water potential compared to the salty water, where earlier they were at a lower water potential compared to the fresh water. This means that the cytoplasm ("cell juice" or "cell sap") is more watery than the salty water you've given the plants. Therefore, water moves out of the plant cell, and the plant loses water. When the plant loses water, the cells are no longer turgid, they are no longer firm. Without enough water, the plant will die.You can try a simple experiment. Take a bunch of raisins, and soak them in water for a long while. They'll swell up. If you take these swollen raisins and put them in very salty water, they'll shrink again if you wait long enough (tip: use fewer raisins and more salty water, and stir from time to time). It doesn't happen just with salt. If you use very sugary water, or honey, they'll shrink too. That's how people make pickles, by leaving cucumbers in very salty water, so they'll shrivel up and become crispy.So you see salt is not a poison or a toxin, but because it affects how much water a plant has, it can affect its health. As for your question on what is salt, I'll direct you to some other webpages and answers from the MadSci archives....from aj ( Full Answer )
Answer . The amount varies depending on the plant species. Some have a higher tolerance. To help determine levels for individual plants, see the Related Link below.
Plants need water to grow and sodium absorbs water making salt have a negative effect on plant growth, But marijuana takes a non negative Effect it needs certain salts to thrive.
Plants need food to grow as human do. Plants need salts to grow, and plants use salts for their food.
Yes, salt water does affect bean plant growth. Many think that itcan make them grow better than regular water, but the water canaffect the natural sodium in the bean making them taste saltier.
\nNo they do not contain the starch that is dangerous to food combine with fats and proteins. By sprouting. all the starch is broken down into more simple sugars. Here's an quote I pulled from another website:\n. \n"Digestibility of sprouted products is increased because the cell walls carrying …carbohydrates and proteins are broken down during the process. Digestibility increases due to production of amylase. Sprouted foods can be converted to amylase rich food. Sprouting of fenugreek reduces its bitter taste. Germination also uses up the indigestible sugars in the seeds so bean sprouts produce less intestinal wind than beans, which have not sprouted. Bean sprouts may some times produce an allergic reaction in people suffering from lupus. Sprouts are an extremely inexpensive method of obtaining a concentration of vitamins, minerals, and enzymes. Sprouts supply food in pre-digested form. During sprouting much of the starch is broken down into simple sugars such as glucose and sucrose by the action of the enzyme amylase. Sprouts contain a lot of fibre and water content, which makes it, help full in overcoming constipation."\n. \nHope this helps you. May you be happy and free. Om Nama Shivaya. ( Full Answer )
because \n Salt affects the growth of many plants, but not all Some root cells of plants that do not tolerate salt may die, and if bad enough the plant will die. The damage gives the plant a burnt look, often on the leaf edges first. Some types of plants, such as mangrove trees, can tolerate high…er levels of salt and not be damaged. Their cells have a high concentration of salt already in them so the water doesn't move out. Some even separate salt from the water and excrete it through their leaves, roots, and branches .

If you add too much sugar, it can hurt a plant, or prevent it from growing. Usually, you should only add sugar to a plant that is sick, or one that needs more nutrients. It is best to just water your plant with regular water and fertilize it from time to time. However, this is not always true, becau…se on other sites i found out that sugar can greatly effect the growth of plants in a positive way; in many experiments, people discovered that the plants with the sugar added to them did the best.

the plants would turn white, in result of the chlorifyll in the leaves to "bleached". The plant would then soon wilt and die, because bleach does not have the right nutrients to sustain the life of a plant.
let me guest your science teacher told you to do this as a project but you dont want to do it and the teacher name is fennelly well too bad
No, i did this experiment froa bio class and the beans not only grew well, but better! Be prepared for saltier beans, though!
Wash the mung beans three to four times until clean. Place thewashed beans in a bowl that has a lid. Place enough water so yousee a 1-inchg gap of water between its surface and the mung beansthen seal. Soak overnight and in the morning remove any excesswater. Cover again for two days then eat as des…ired. ( Full Answer )
Mung beans require a low salt concentration. The lower the saltconcentration the more water that is pulled in and this causes thebean to expand. The higher the salt concentration more water isdrawn from the bean.
In gererally all plants need these nutrients including beans:. Carbon. Oxyogen. Hydrogen. Nitrogen. Sulfur. Phosphorus. Potassium. Calcium. Magnesium
Me and Samantha are workin on it so don't bother to ask we will find out later!!(we are in the science fair YAY :)
Bean sprouts are baby bean plants. Bean sprouts have been used for centuries for their nutritional and medical benefits. Chinese physicians prescribed sprouts over 5,000 years ago. Bean sprouts have continued to be a staple in Asian cuisine. Although accounts of sprouting appear in the Bible in the… Book of Daniel, it took centuries for Europeans and Americans to fully appreciate bean sprouts. In the 1700?s, sailors suffered from scurvy (lack of vitamin C) during their voyages. In the 1770s, Captain James Cook had his sailors eat limes, lemons, and sprouts; all abundant sources of vitamin C. Along with other fresh fruits and vegetables, a continuous program of growing and eating sprouts was credited with preventing scurvy in sailors. During World War II, Dr. Clive McKay of Cornell University sparked American interest in sprouts. Dr. McKay had spent years researching sprouted soybeans. He wrote an article that touted soybean sprouts as "A vegetable that will grow in any climate, will rival meat in nutritive value, will mature in 3 to 5 days, may be planted any day of the year, will require neither soil nor sunshine, will rival tomatoes in Vitamin C, will be free of waste in preparation and can be cooked with little fuel ."

No. because every living creatures or being needs light to survive.. Not to sure about the bean sprout - but there are many forms of life that grow in complete darkness.
Sprouts are a very healthy and inexpensive food to add to any diet. They contain not only vitamins and minerals but also healthy enzyms that aid in digestion. Another great thing about sprouts is that they are extemely easy to grow at home in your own kitchen, and they require very little light. If …your interested, youtube.com has alot of videos on the various ways to do this, the cheapest being in the $5 range. ( Full Answer )
It mixes with water stored in plant and changes its pH as a result the plant dies.,
Bean sprouts are mung beans that are already sprouted/germinated....... so you can't really germinate them anymore..
Soak them over night, and then put them in a jar with a ventilated lid so air can get in and get out. Rinse them daily, and drain out excess water. When they sprout they are done!
I use mung beans and alfalfa - very tasty and crispy in salads and stir-fry. I keep 3 or 4 jars of each going at about 2 - 3 day sowing intervals so I guess it is about 10 days for mung beans and about 7 days for the alfalfa from starting them to eating them.
yes salt helps it grow more than a unusual plant and sugar helps it strink
You can sprout any beans or alfalfa seeds, radish seeds etc. Use a clear see through container (with a lid) such as a glass jar or there are special sprouting containers you can purchase from health stores, place about two teaspoons in the jar fill with water and soak beans for 12 hours, pour off… the water, place jar of wet beans in a window (doesn't need to have direct sunlight on them) keep rinsing the beans one or two times a day (use a strainer or cheese cloth over the top so beans won't go down the drain) you should see sprouts within three to five days. Grow them until they are the desired size, these are very good to eat on salads or by themselves. Store them in your refrigerator in a zip lock baggie. ( Full Answer )
the salt water would effect the mung seed wait three days See it will germinate
Because of their large size, lima beans are great for watching as they sprout. Give each student a plastic baggie, preferably with a ziploc-type top. Each student places a couple of dry lima beans in her bag. She then adds a little water and closes the bag.. Write each child's name on his bag with …a permanent marker, and tape the bags to a window that gets a lot of sun. As the days progress, you will observe sprouts emerging from the lima beans. Tell your students that this is what happens when the seeds are planted in the earth. The sprout would eventually poke through the ground, and grow, and become a plant that would produce more lima beans.. An optional step two is to take new, dry lima beans and plant them in soil in cups. Keep those in the window and let your students water them daily. It is exciting to watch the sprouts emerge from the soil, just as they watched sprouts emerge from the seed itself. ( Full Answer )
Sugar will give the flower a boost but to mach will kill it so put only half a cup
If you have just a handful then sandwich them between two layers of cotton wool, put them on a plate, water them keeping the bottom constantly moist. Place the plate on a windowsill, indoors. Wait about three days for them to sprout. If you intend growing them; put them in soil covering then abou…t an inch. Keeping the soil moist (but not permanent flooding) the shoots will appear about 3 to 6 days and grow into plants. ( Full Answer )
The effect that salt has on plants is that it doesn't stimulate the growth cycle. Controlled (pure water) on the other hand makes plants grow faster than watering it with salt water.
A growth sprout is when you reach a certain age, and you grow taller by more than usual. It can usally happen between the ages of 10-16. It happened to me when I was 11. xD
Yes, a bean sprout is a young bean plant. Bean sprouts have been used for centuries for their nutritional and medical benefits. Chinese physicians prescribed sprouts over 5,000 years ago.

If it i s too hot outside it would affect the water fron going to the roots. Therefore killing the plant.
Water will make the bean sprout. Both salt water and baby oil will hinder or halt the bean sprouting.
Salt water has more salt and as a result, the hardness of the water is more. When the roots absorb the water, the salt, which in itself is a solid, gets in more and as a result, the minerals essential for the growth is not provided. So, for these minerals, the roots try to do more work but, the plan…t has less food for itself and therefore, it cannot let any part do more or less work. ( Full Answer )
Yes, but not to much. . . You may have some "stuff" to pick up if you do give to much. Stuff= POO!
yes you can i tried it the heat from you mouth helps the plant grow
What we usually do at home, get about 1 cup of beans, put it in a container with water then let it stay there for 1 week or until all the sprouts came up...just don't let it stay longer where the leaves will start to show up already...
During germination, the nutritive ingredients found in beans and seeds become profoundly modified: starch is converted into glucose and fructose, bean proteins are predigested by specific seed enzymes and transformed into amino acids and more digestible protein nutrients, the water content increases…, as well as the vitamin and mineral content. Unlike most vegetables, whose nutritional value progressively decreases after they have been harvested, bean sprouts retain their nutritional properties until consumed. Bean sprouts are a rich source of amino acids (for protein), vitamins and minerals, and also contain fiber, vitamins A, B, C, D, E, and K, and folate. They are an excellent source of potassium, calcium, phosphorous, magnesium, and zinc. Potassium is an important component of cell and body fluids that plays an important role in lowering blood pressure by countering the detrimental effects of sodium and regulating fluid balance. It is an electrolyte that helps regulate the natural rhythm of the heart, and maintains normal function of the brain and central nervous system. Potassium also assists in storing carbohydrates that are used as fuel by the muscles, and promotes regular muscle growth. Mung bean sprouts contain phytoestrogens called isoflavones, that can help relieve many symptoms associated with menopause (such as hot flashes, heart palpitations, and osteoporosis) that result from decreased estrogen levels. Phytoestrogens found in bean sprouts act on certain estrogen-receptors found in the skin, stimulating the synthesis of hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin, which are vital components of the skin's structure, and improves elasticity and reduces moisture loss. Sprouts are rich in iron, which play a key role in the synthesis of hemoglobin, the protein found in red blood cells. They are also particularly high in vitamin C. Bean sprouts can help reduce the blood levels of LDL-cholesterol due to their fiber and lecithin. This effect is beneficial to the heart and vessels, since it helps prevent the development of atherosclerosis, the most common cause of cardiovascular disease. Bean sprouts contain high amounts of proteins, vitamins, and zinc in a readily available form, which promote healthy hair and nails. Bean sprouts are an excellent source of lecithin which, besides lowering blood cholesterol levels, helps prevent fatty liver disease. Bean sprouts are a source of readily available energy and other nutrients which are helpful in relieving stress and fatigue. ( Full Answer )
Yes. My son just proved this as part of his science experiment. Seeds were over-watered in rocks, top soil, mulch and sand. Beans grew in 2 of the 3 cups of rocks and 2 of the 3 cups of sand. They grew in only 1 of the 3 top soil cups and none of the mulch cups. This is because the beans were plante…d deeply and overwatered. The rocks and sand could drain much better. The top soil and mulch which really held too much water and got packed hard, trapping the bean underneath. ( Full Answer )
It depends on what amount of salt you use and the amount. I am presuming that you are using coking salt. Salt kills plants, it wont kill your bean seed with a tiny amount but the larger the amount the bigger the risk of it dieing.
You can eat sprouted beans raw, some types of beans are better than others for this. Some are more starchy and are better cooked lightly or stir fried quickly. It is a matter of taste, so trial can be the best approach unless you have a health food store that sells seeds for sprouting and then you c…an get their recommendations for how to best use each type of bean. There are sources of the commonly sprouted seeds on the web. They are very healthy and easy to sprout your own. Mung beans are the typical bean sprouts in Chinese dishes. See the related question below about sprouting the grain, quinoa ("keen-wa"), for simple sprouting instructions. ( Full Answer )
Well I use Morton Salt for my science fair project and my plant is not dieing, it is just getting smaller!
Grow two plants of the same genus. Water one with plain tap water - and use a solution of water mixed with road salt to water the other one. Observe the different growth rates and - you have your answer !
Sprouts are an excellent fresh source of nutrition for poultry,including ducks and chickens. The birds actually relish thesprouted grains.
Yes it does. Edless I think it does.I am doing an experiment on it and I am not so sure yet but I would say yes!
it cannot sprout in milk as kidney beans arent a sproutable form therefore the sproutyness cannot be educated to be released in milk, cath and soph therefore discuss+disagree with this quoted question.
They are not the same thing. It depends on the recipe, whether or not you can use edamame (soy beans) for (mung) beansprouts. For a salad or something similar it won't make much difference, as they both add texture without much flavor. For eggrolls or chow mein though the difference would be too muc…h. Shredded Bok choy ("chinese" cabbage) would probably be a more palatable substitution. The ultimate choice is yours though, if it works go with it. ( Full Answer )
No, it is the plant that grows the bean. It is a plant, no a seed.
Bean Sprouts are a storehouse of nutrients. Bean sprouts containvitamins B, C, B1, B6, K and A. In addition, sprouts are also asource of food rich in iron, magnesium, phosphorus, calcium,potassium, and manganese, and omega 3 fatty acids.
It is very easy to sprout lima beans, but if you are doing so to eat them then you must know that raw beans, and especially raw kidney beans and lima beans, are toxic to humans. Cook them and they are fine, but raw you don't want to do. Lima beans contain a chemical called linamarin which is a cya…nogenic glycoside or a chemical containing cyanide which is deactivated with heat. Always cook your limas! Even eating only 3/4 pound can cause serious problems in humans. ( Full Answer )
