In science we are studying plants. We have to change something to see what happens when something new is used. My controls are the seeds and the soil. I decided to manipulate (change) the water. Instead of watering the soil with water I am watering it with Seltzer. My hypothesis is that the plant will survive shorter and grow smaller because of the flavoring in the seltzer.
After one week the plant has started to grow just a little bit. It is green with about two leaves in a group of two. There is also a green stem that is about the size of my pinky finger. The more I feed it with water (control) the more the plant is growing now. The plant that is fed Seltzer has not started to grow.
This is my control:
