    1. 1. Question/Aim How do different liquids effect plant (Pansies) growth.
    2. 2. Hypothesis Soft drinks: The leaves will fall of the plant will die. Bathroom Concoction: Everything will shrivel up, fall off and die. Sea Water: Plant will die quite slowly. Rain water: Plant will live happily and NOT die. Tap Water: Plant will die quite slowly and flowers will change colour.
    3. 3. Test Feed pansies 6 teaspoons of certain liquid per day at around 5:00 p.m & take photo of (LABLED) plant, for one week.
    4. 4. Equipment Teaspoons (1 each=6) Soft drinks Bathroom Concoction Tap Water Sea Water Rain Water (225 Ml per liquid) Pansies (one per person=6) Ice cream containers (one per person)
    5. 5.  Results Tuesday- (Start of Experiment) - One flower is looking ill but the rest is OK including the leaves and roots. Wednesday- Same as yesterday, except a few leaves which have fallen off and crumpled up and a flower thats dying. Thursday- Like yesterday, except that some leaves near the soil are dead and the flower that was dying is now dead. Friday- 2nd flower beggining to die. (seawater seems to effect flowers), Leaves are starting to turn yellow and gold. Saturday- 2nd flower dead and some leaves are also dead. My theory: this species of plant probably dislikes seawater, because Pansies usually arent found planted near the ocean). Sunday- Same as Yesterday but as I was inspecting the plant I found a leaf that had a part of it that was Transpareable-ish gray. Monday- All of the other alive flowers have their petals curling inwards. Leaves as green as ever.

    10. 10. Variables It would’ve been more exact if we watered them in the same place so that the temperatures and amount of sunlight would’ve been the same. It also could’ve been better if all the plants were the same kind.
    11. 11. How this relates to Sharing The Planet  This can relate to sharing the planet by Humans intervening and watering plants with a new man-made formula or liquid,and cause a positivity, and help try and make up for all of the negative things humans have done to all kinds of vegetation.
    12. 12. Conclusion The best choice out of these for Pansies is Tap water and if your pipes break your Pansies wont last a full week!
    13. 13. Application Maybe for when a scientist wants to get plants to reproduce faster like rainforest trees because people are chopping them down too fast for them to reproduce again, they could try and make a liquid for the tree, shrub etc, that theyre trying to preserve and that liquid would help it produce better or faster resources. E.g: wood, fruit, vegetables etc.
