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 . It should not affect it, if it is gray water, like water you wash your hands with, or tub water, nothing with chlorine bleach in it or cleaning chemicals
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.
Tap water typically contains minerals and nutrients that aregood for plants. Bottled water has these filtered out before it issold and city water contains chlorine (for example) to help killbacteria which is harmful for plants. The "tap water" differs in different parts of the world. Countriesin tr…opical areas have chlorine (and sometimes fluorine) added toit to kill and control bacterial (and fungal) growth. Theseelements in high concentrations can have detrimental results toplant growth and seed germination Think practically. About 99.9% of all indoor plants IN THE WORLDare watered with tap water; about 90% of all domestic gardens andlandscapes are watered with water that originates basically from atap. ( Full Answer )
Answer \n. \nMicrobes grow in warm temperatures. But there is a limit, they need an optimum temperature to grow best.\n. \n \n. \n \n. \n Not Exactly \n. \nBacteria have an optimal temperature for growth, yes, but the temperature varies with the microbe. \n. \nBacteria are split into cl…asses based on where the optimal growth temp. falls. The edges of the groupings are fuzzy, but the approx. ranges are: 1. Extreme psychophiles (or psychotrophs) -- below -5 o C 2. Psychophiles (or psychotrophs) -- -5 o C to 25 o C 3. Mesophiles-- 25 o C to 45 o C 4. Thermophiles-- 45 o C to 70 o C 5. Extreme thermophiles-- above 70 o C There is overlap and different sources will have different ranges, but these categories define bacterial habitat from Arctic ice to inside hydrothermal vents of sea floor volcanos. Food spoiles in the refrigerator because there are bacteria that grow at those tempreatures. ( Full Answer )
Answer . Yes, it does. If the plant is in the water for 1 week then the color of the plant will change to the color of the water.
Answer . If there is too little moisture for the seeds, then they won't even germinate. Too much water will cause the roots to rot (at least in "regular" plants and not those specifically adapted to waterlogged soil) or will actually suffocate the roots. To grow plants, the proper amount of moist…ure must be present for the seeds to begin growing, and also for the continued growth of the plant. ( Full Answer )
Answer . Yes it does. The hottest the water is, the fastest the plant will die. This needs a little explanation. As you know the roots under the ground are still weak and not strong at all. So the cells that made up the roots are still young. When you give hot water, it will kill it, because the …roots can't hold the hot water.. Answer . Yes. In a high school biology experiment it was discovered that lukewarm water is more conducive to growth than cold water. However hot water would damage the plant.. ( Full Answer )
Chlorine is considered a micro-element inplant growth and is required in small amounts for normal plantmetabolism. However, applied or absorbed in high concentrations itcan burn, damage or even kills plants. Chlorine is toxic to most plants at levels exceeding 350 ppm (partsper million), some more… sensitive species such as ferns showtoxicity at 100 ppm or more. The "regular" chlorinated water out of thetap doesn't have enough chlorine in it to significantly harmplants. Bottled water normally has a chlorine level of about 50ppm. ( Full Answer )
Temperature absolutely affects the growth of plants, so the answer to the question is yes . Use the link below and it will lead you to a post that helps you understand this.
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.
Not exaclty, i have tried this before. I watered one with normal water and one with soapy water. The soapy watered one wasn't very effected. In fact, it is still living(: and the normal watered one is too. but there really isn't much of a difference between the two of them. So yes, soapy water does …affect a plant, but a very small effect. Meaning, the plant would still live for a pretty long time, if you watered it at its regularly needed basis. :D ( Full Answer )
bacteria grows best at warm temperatures. it has been proved. but if it gets too high (cooking temperatures) it may be killed. that probably has been proved but i am not aware. hope this help. i
Here are some different opinions from our community: The answer to this question is a resounding yes! The differentminerals can affect the growth of different plants very much. Theminerals and pH level of the water will contribute to the soilcontent, which is the most vital part of the plant's envi…ronment.The best example of this is probably the hydrangea bush. When thesoil in which the plant grows is highly acidic, the plant's flowerswill be blue in color. If the soil is neutral, cream coloredflowers will most likely result. Soil high in alkaline content willresult in pink or purple buds. ____ The answer previously posted is semi-correct. The question orquestions being asked of this type are mainly will a plant growbetter in sugar water, salt water, tap water, lemon juice, soda,coca cola, pepsi, apple juice- and the list goes on. A plant needsrainwater, sunlight and nutrient rich soil. It doesn't need refinedsugars, salt, or even milk. Even miracle grow can be harmful to aplant. It contains large amounts of nitrogen. Too much can be toxicand kill the plant. It's like steroids on a human, you're all bigand buff but the side effects are low testosterone levels in menand mental side effects. The result: fewer offspring. You growtwice as fast but live half as long. Tap water has chlorine in it which is deadly to plants. Stormwatercontains road grime or oil, gasoline, diesel fuel, radiator fluids,brake fluids and the list goes on and on, again. All of thesethings are harmful to plants and humans as well. As to changing thecolor of hydrangea blooms, you can do this by adding minerals tothe soil and not the water as well. Just add some iron, zinc orcopper to the soil and the blooms will change color. Salt water in large quantities will kill a plant, but a plant alsoneeds salt to survive, just like humans. Sugar water will kill aplant if the sugar level is too high. It causes unnecessarybacterial growth that can kill the root system. It can causediabetes in humans as well, but our bodies need sugars to convertfood into energy. Plants are similar to humans in the fact that ifwe are given what we require like clean air, sunshine, clean watersources, protection from the elements and diseases, we thrive, butwhen any of these things are tampered with or removed, we suffer asa result. ____ My findings with different types of plants and also with duringdifferent parts of the growing process are that rain watercollected during a rain shower provides much better results overthe use of standard tap water. In my findings such as germination of Tomato plants, as well asgrowth of seedlings, the rain water provided a considerable levelof growth which was easily visible over a 48 hour period. Plants like rain water; they grow faster, and are more healthy ingeneral... it is a visible difference. Even with Germination of small bulbs of flowering plants in an eggcarton. rain water provides an accelerated growth pattern asopposed to tap water. You can see it with your own eyes, withinhours, not days like tap water. Try it for yourself. ( Full Answer )
The detergent does affect plant growth because the detergent has too much chemicals that are very poisonous to the plant! ->Tatiana
PH, Nitrates, Calcium , cow manure is the best of all and basicly everything exept contaminated materials
1. For decades, people have been experimenting with music and plant growth. Many amateur plant growers claim that classical music works better than loud rock and roll and heavy metal. So far, scientific studies have not backed up this claim. No one has proven that plants prefer one kind of music to… another. 2. Plants do like noise. Plants exposed to a set frequency of sound tend to germinate more quickly, grow taller and weigh more than those kept in silence. Both 50,000 hz ultrasound (above the human hearing range) and 5,000 hz sound seem to work. Therefore, there's a good chance that plants like any sound you might play for them, including music. 3. Plants also like good, attentive care. If you are playing music you like for a plant, it may lead you to take better care of it. You will be more likely to carefully water and feed the plant and make sure it has good light. It might look like the music helps the plant grow, when you are actually taking better care of it. 4. Plants like carbon dioxide. If you are standing by a plant, singing to it, it is going to absorb some carbon dioxide from your breath. This could help it to grow more quickly. ( Full Answer )
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 :)
Yes, temperature does have an affect on the growth of a plant. If the temperature reaches a certain temperature such as -7 degrees grass will freeze, but not die. If the temperature reaches a high of 120 degrees grass's water will evaporate and the plant WILL die from dehydration . It is muc…h the same for all plants , although plants vary as to how much effect temperature has on them and we can alter the amount of effect somewhat. For example, during times of extreme heat, we can water the lawn. yes it does because if it is to cold than it will die. ( Full Answer )
Within a certain temperature range, there should be no difference. Though I suppose if you are planning to water your flowers with boiling water, just hope you don't damage the roots or something.
Yes, temperature affects mold growth. The warmer the temperaturesare, the faster the mold can grow. Mold can grow on anything.
Water temperature can majorly change how a plant grows. Too cold ortoo hot water can make a plant not be able to grow at all.
Yes, it has less contaminations than other plants. . Yes, it has less contaminations than other plants.
Water should never be freezing or boiling when you water plants, it could damage the roots but warm water is sometimes very effective, especially with houseplants during the winter. Hibiscus, for example, likes to have warm water during the winter months.
It mostly kills it. I did a science fair project in seventh grade and aspirin killed all of my plants. Sorry.
It depends on the type of plant. There are some plants that thrive in incredibly warm temperatures, like a cactus, and some that are just the oppisite. Your question needs to be more specific.
It depends on the plant and on the klimate the plant originate from. Some orkids can only survive with softened water, others cant survive without alot of calcium in the water(tap-water) - and in a less extreme variant it is the same with all other plants. Most rainforest-plants like demineralis…ed water(tumbledryer-water). bottled water is no better than tumbledryer-water so use the cheaper. Tap water is totally fine, but if you have mÃºch bacteria in your tapwater it may be a problem for some plants but not for others. ( Full Answer )
The crystals will be smaller. Low temperature leads to slow crystallisation which leads to larger crystals.
yes the hell it does cause actually u can give a plant a lot a water a one a drop of water and the one with the most water will most likely grow better
If it i s too hot outside it would affect the water fron going to the roots. Therefore killing the plant.
Yes. In very small amounts.Sodium chloride is salt, applied at about 1 part to 1,000 salt to soil it can have a slight fertilising effect, but used at 1lb to a gallon of water it is a weedkiller.
it is darkness that matters to the plant not the light but idk know which is more important...sry
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 )
Because some plants are from different places. EXAMPLE: a plant from Texas can't go to Alaska answer: The plant from Texas would die because of such the big difference between the heat in Texas and the cold in Alaska.
high chemical wastes that gives you genital warts & all other sick diseases that kill you.
Well, that question has two answers... If the water is just gray with food coloring, no. If the water is actually dirty, it will affect most plants.
Bleach is very toxic if not properly diluted, and can easily kill any plant. But, when added to water (about 3 table spoons to 1 gallon, OR what ever brings the PH levels to a neutral reading ) can actually help plants in many ways. First by balancing the PH, it helps the plant to avoid many types… of nutrient lock-out, witch is caused when the alkine and acid level are too far out of balance and the plants vessels ( veins ) "clog" with the excess, reduceing the plants ability to move water and nutrients to its leafs. This is often fatal to plants Bleach also contains several minerals that the plant need to grow, but only in trace amounts. Bleach can also help reduce bacteria in the soil. This can be a good thing and a bad thing, depending on what plants your growing and where you are growing them ( Full Answer )
the plant will grow tall and strong if it has enough sun lightshade and water .
No as long as the coloring agent is not toxic but it can affect the color of a flower that has been cut.
Unless it is eco-friendly detergent, just plain ole laundry detergent will surly whither the plant
sometimes.... if the water is too hot, it may make the animal get a burn in throat or mouth or the plant my burn or die... otherwise it doesn't matter as long as the plant or animal gets hydrated to live
Lower temperatures equal slower metabolism and slower growth. Conversely extremely high temperatures (over 35 degrees Cecilius) also cause plant metabolism to slow (again resulting in retarded growth). The "Optimal" window for plant growth is considered to be between 20 and 25 degrees Celsius; thi…s however, is determined by the type of plant and how it has evolved in its natural environment (i.e. genetic and environmental factors).

the effect saltwater has on most plants is that a bellend will grow out of the plants.
Soda may produce a hypertonic environment, which would cause plant cells to lose water and wilt. Certain types of soda, such as Coca Cola and Sprite, in fact, have a negative effect on plants! We all know that plants need water and carbon dioxide to live, but soft drinks cause infection to plants by… weakening their immune systems, as well as kill the roots. My results were that the Coca-Cola plants died quicker, grew smaller, and did not grow more leaves. Plants use water and light to create sugar, which they use to nourish themselves. It is common knowledge that sodas, like Coke and Pepsi, are liquids that are full of sugar, but the effect they have on plants is actually far more harmful than helpful. Standard Coke or Pepsi will have adverse effects on plant growth and will eventually kill the plant. Though these drinks are packed with sugar, the plant does not need any more sugar; it makes all of the sugar it needs through photosynthesis. The extra sugar from the sodas will just get packed down in the soil, where it will inhibit the plant's ability to absorb water through its roots. Pouring soda into your plant's soil not only has the adverse effects like constricting water intake and excessive sugar buildup, but it also attracts bugs. Bugs will be attracted to the scent of the sugar; and before you know it, they will be all over the plants, most likely eating it. Soda on plants also promotes bacterial and fungal growth, which can also eventually kill your plants. Sugar added to the water given to a plant can help the plant grow faster, bigger, greener and taller, because plants have the process of respiration. If you add used coffee grounds to aplants area for mulch it will compost and fertilize the plant since there is little caffeine to bother the plant. If you apply the caffeine as a concentrated solute, it may suppress plant growth. The caffeine uses up all the calcium and absorbing it causing the plant to grow slower. There are many folk-cures and hear-say remedies for growing plants, many if not most will end in weakening if not killing the plant, the best recourse is to know the plant, know what type of soil it likes, and what kind of nutrients it requires. Some plants produce caffeine in order to ward off predators. The caffeine produced by plants does not help them to grow. Caffeine harms plant growth. ( Full Answer )
IT DEPENDS yes, they do. it depends what colors though. the darker colors cannot absorb the light but the lighter colors can. that's how some plants can be affected.
The plannt will grow a small amount but it doesnt effect it in a way that there will be large amounts of growth from the plant. Although it may depend on what the type of flavoured water is.
yes, water is important for plant growth. It provides nutrients for the plant, but too much water causes turgor pressure and that means that the plant's cells swell up. This is why too much water can kill a plant. Not enough water causes the plant's cells to shrink which can also cause death.
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!
I don't know if this is correct but I think that since they cansurvive in a specific temperature, it affects them and they eitherstart getting too moist or dry.
If a plant's soil has too much water , the roots can rot, and the plant can't get enough oxygen from the soil. If there is notenough water for a plant , the nutrients it needs cannot travel through the plant .
