Iyanna Williams 10/26/17 Research Paper: Sugar water is a poison to plants. Sugar water should only be used when flowers are beginning to wilt(Become limp through heat,loss of water,or disease).Sugar changes the way the plant observes the water.It 's important not to put sugar in a plant 's water source when you have a healthy plant. Plants receive water by a process called osmosis.Osmosis is the procedure in which water is absorbed through semipermeable(Allowing certain substances to pass through it but not others, especially allowing the passage of a solvent but not of certain solutes) membranes happens at high concentration levels.Sugar changes the concentration of the soil and can make it hard the plants absorb.Plants make their on…show more content…
‘’Salt water is a hypertonic solution when compared to the plant cells and water inside the plant cells will spread.’’ ‘’Salt is a natural mineral made up of white cube shaped crystals composed of two elements,sodium and chlorine’’ ‘’Most plants cannot survive in saltwater.The amount of minerals in soil is very low salinity(dissolved salt)to survive.Saltwater dries out the plant and puts it at risk of salt poisoning,Too much salt interferes with chemical process which the plant uses to spread nutrients and change chemicals into sugars.When the soil tries to absorb the saltwater.Saltwater does not allow osmosis.’’ Plant cell walls become swollen and stiff when the cells fill with water.The cells become swollen and hard when osmotic pressure builds in the cells.This keeps the leaves of the plant from wilting and allows it to stand up in sunlight. The effects of tap water.Tap water is good when it 's not too cold nor too hot.Sometimes tap water can be filled with minerals and chemicals that can harm plants.Even filtered tap water can buildup minerals. ‘’Part of the purification process for municipal tap water involves adding chlorine to purify water.The chlorinates remove microorganisms.’’ Putting tap water in a container and letting it sit,is the best way to let the chlorine and fluorine evaporate.Tap water won 't immediately kill plants.It will just slow them down most only a tiny amount.
