\n. \n Yes? \n. \nYes but not without the nutrients and oxygen available in soil, there is a way to grow plants without soil, it is called Hydroponics. Hydroponically grown plants are grown in a solution of water containing the necessary plant nutrients.
Answer Sea Water is salty and might not be useful for watering house plants because salt will ruin the plant by osmosis due to water potential differences. So, better to use sweet water. Plants that grow in salt water are different. So, salt water plants and sweet water plants are different.
Just as humans need water to live and grow. We just need it. \nJust as humans need water to live and grow. We just need it.
Water is used as a transport medium in plants. Water flows up the phloem tubes with dissolved mineral ions inside of it. . Also water is a major reactant in photosynthesis: . 6CO 2 + 6H 2 O -------> C 6 H 12 O 6 + 6O 2 . Carbon dioxide + Water ------------> Glucose + Oxygen . So to sum up, In …plants water acts as a transport medium and a reactant to make food. . (MORE)
The reason that plants don't grow with salt water is because salt suck out all the liquid in the plant causing the plant structure to collapse.
At present (and I stress "present"), plants cannot grow withoutwater being added to its environment in one form or another (water,water vapour etc.). This includes plans grown in terrariums where the water isrecycled. However, take a look at the link below and see some of the researchthat is curre…ntly being performed in this aspect. (MORE)
Answer . In a manner of speaking, yes, since it determines whether they grow.. Answer . Yes, it does have an effect on how plants grow. If you give a plant too much water, it may wilt and die. If you don't give a plant enough water, it may shrivel, wilt, not grow, or die.
If you get the soil right and don't water the plant too much or too little, most ivies, spider plants and others you find at the supermarket will do fine. The very easiest is a good quality silk plant...
If you notice that some soda grow faster than water in plants. Some sugar in soda kill the plants. So there is your answer, some sugar in soda kill plants.
I can tell you from personal experience that African Violets will die if watered with milk thanks to my 10 year old niece. I don't know about anything else, sorry. I can tell you something else, well 4in. Golden Pothos can grow to about 5in. in two weeks. I did that in my science project.
It is essentially for almost all plants (even parasitic ones), and dissolves the minerals that the plant needs. Plants break down water and use the hydrogen to form glucose, cellulose and other complex molecules.
\nYes a plant can grow in water!. \nYes a plant can grow in water!. \nYes a plant can grow in water!
Without water plants (like most living organisms) will witherand die. Without water plants become dessicated, the cell structurein the plant is changed or damaged and the cells die. Additionally, nutrients in the soil are also absorbed into theplant in solution, this means they have to be disolved …in water inorder to be taken into the roots of the plant - here water acts asa medium.

Most plants cannot survive in salty water, however, some plantsthrive on it. An example of a saltwater plant is a marine seagrass.
It depends on what plant it is if it is a bean or wheat grass it can but if it is a flower it cant because they need fertilizer
Plants need water to perform all of their other normal activities,including growth. If you give them water, plants will be able toabsorb necessary nutrients from the soil that will enable them todo photosynthesis and to get the energy they need to grow.
Plants that grow in salt water can be divided into three main categories - ocean plants, terrestrial plants and marginal plants. Ocean plants , well the list is extensive - various types of algae, seaweed and coral etc. In general the salt levels of the sea vary from about 30,000 parts per millio…n up to 50,000 parts per million - depending on geography, tides, climate, season etc. By way of comparison "normal" bottled water contains no more than 250 parts per million of salt! Terrestrial plants with adaptations - known as Halophytes, these are plants that have adaptions that allow them to live in saline soils (either close to the coast or on salt flats). Some eliminate salt through glands in their leaves, some store the salt in leaves and stems that are shed at the end of the growing season, and others have salt-blocking membranes around their roots. Halophytes include certain grasses, succulent plants and saltbush - also Neanthe Bella. There are also a small group of plants that can tolerate high levels of salt (in the soil or water), but are not Halophytes. The Date Palm is one example of this. Marginal plants - such as mangroves which grow in estuarine areas, tidal flats and in inter-tidal zones. For the rest, most other plants will either die or become damaged if water with salt water or even water with moderate amounts of salt in it. NORMAL PLANTS If normal plants are watered with salt water or planted in soil that is saline - then osmosis cannot occur properly (or in severe cases reverse-osmosis occurs), this means that water cannot move into the roots of the plant from the soil and the root system may become damaged. Plants will show signs of stunted growth, yellowing as well as wilting; depending on the sensativity of the plant to salt death may occur. (MORE)
I have an 10 gal. fish/water garden that sits on my deck every summer (and is overwintered in a heated garage). Every summer, I buy a 4 pack of starter Impatiens and take them out of the flats, rinse off all dirt from the roots and put them in the fish tank. They absolutely love it, thrive, get huge… and bloom profusely. In fact, they get so large that I have to take out half of them mid summer and plant in the garden....they take over the water garden and we can't see the fish. They don't keep over the winter in the 35 degree garage, so I take them out in the fall before moving the tank into the garage and throw them into the compost pile. Another great plant for a water garden is a green ivy house plant, which also thrives in water. I have a small pump in the tank so the water is always fresh. I don't know if the plants would do as well in stagnant water, but these two plants are a good variety for a large OR small water garden and much less expensive than buying pond plants. (MORE)
very complex question..lol.....but ill take a guess and say yea... if all else fails use battery acid..what a stupid question...
H2O, hydrogen and oxygen are what is in water that helps plantsgrow. Without these nutrients a plant will die.
This is a broad topic. I'd suggest starting with common house plants such as the African violet or Peace lily. They're easy and not fussy. You need to consider the following factors when growing house plants: . Light . Soil . Watering . Fertilizing These factors are often specific to certa…in plants, so you should check the details for the specific plant. Often plants come with a label that has care instructions. (MORE)
Most plants can, unless they are a type that dislikes being soaked. You may wish to let the water stand for a day or two first to let any chlorine in it dissipate.
no they can l8ive in salt water becuaes A large number of plants grow as mangroves near sea shore and a good number inside the sea as kelp and several other forms. Sea water is best example of salt water.
yes because when you grow a bean it turns out to be a plant anyway so people always use water to grow anything that is a plant and water always works with plants the best because it makes flowers grow and grow even bigger and bigger and it would probably do the same with an bean plant!..
yes plants can grow in a pot of water because of the nutrients the water provides.
Every plant you see grows in soil but water is there just to keep it good all plants need water
Just regular old water, houseplants prefer room temperature water. If you have a lot of chlorine in your water let water stand in a container over night 48 hours.
10 days but now the rest of the year wbu? and what did you do to get here?
Chlorophyll in the leaves splits the water into Hydrogen and Oxygen.The oxygen is given out through pores called stomata.The Hydrogen is combined with Carbon Dioxide( taken in through stomata) to form Starch which is consumed by the plants for energy and growth. Water is also essential for transpor…t of nutrients to various parts of the plant and also for numerous biochemical reactions. (MORE)
Only some plants do like seaweed plants and even water hose plants like a peacelilly, spiderplants, umbrella plant and grape ivy.
Plants can grow if watered with fruit juice, but it's not a goodidea. The sugar in the juice is not needed and ends up attractingflies and other insects, and may also contribute to the growth ofmold in the soil.
Plants need water to make glucose. Glucose is a sugary substance that plants make. Glucose is the food that plants need to live. So yes, plants do need water.
The reason why this is, is mainly because ocean water is filled with salt that has dissolved into it and salt kills most plants.
Seaweed is a kind of plant called alga that lives in salty water. Algae can be red, brown, green, or blue, but they still contain chlorophyll for making food from sunlight. Some seaweeds fasten themselves on to rocks. Others have bubbles of air in their leaves so they can float.
Actually it just doesn't work it needs to be soil that isn't as hard as a rock and I would suggest some fertilizer, when you water it don't pour a jug right onto it. I personally use old window cleaner bottles that are empty and washed well than I put water and sometimes plant food and mix it togeth…er. Finally it turns out to be one healthy plant!! :o) (MORE)
yes they need so to grow up because they need the nutrituns from the water
Plants having water have turgid cells. Turgidity helps in cell division as well as cell elongation. Hence these plants grow faster than water scare plants.
You can grow many of the vining plants in water by taking cuttings off of a mature plant. Here are some types: . Creeping charlie . Coleus . Pothos (philodendron) . Wandering Jew . Ivy types
answ2. The roots of the plant absorb water from the soil around, and will by osmosis absorb minerals they need. If there is not sufficient water they will be stressed, and may die. If the soil temperature becomes too hot, they plants will not thrive.
yes a plant can grow in a cup of water unless you put some tissue in the cup to squeeze the seed in to having more water which provides them more nutrition
They grow at depths that allow them enough light to photosynthesize. They use sunlight and dissolved carbon dioxide and release oxygen the way land plants do, using this same process. To grow, develop, and propagate, they use the other nutrients and chemicals made available by currents and the detri…tus that continuously falls all over the ocean floors. (MORE)
Because you make food with sugar and water and if you add sugar water it will produce more food and soon enough you will have to much food and will not hold.
Yes, many plants can break through the foundation. Bamboo especially spreads quickly and can break through concrete.
A cactus plant. Like in deserts. If you want to see one in person, go to Arizona.
it cant grow plants because its more than just and plants only take plain water.
Nothing really just the water and sun that shines over the water hope I helped
A seed floating releases gases of CO2 (carbon dioxide) which slowly allows the seed to lose its buoyancy and thus sink beneath the waves, and, providing it isn't eaten, it will take root and grow when it reaches the bottom.
A plant will certainly not grow if you soak it in water. All living things need air. Any type of plant is a living thing. And it needs air too. So no, a plant will not grow if soaked it water
The two main requirements for any growing plant are to provide light and water. If plants are deprived of light they grow very long and spindly in their urge to seek light. So, if you are planning to grow them in dark conditions, it is essential to provide lighting for them.
If you mean no water whatsoever, then almost assuredly not. Water(H2O) and Carbon Dioxide (CO2) are the reactants of photosynthesis(the process by which plant cells convert H2O and CO2 into Glucose(C6H12O6) and oxygen gas (O2)), which is essential for plant cellsto produce energy to live. Without wa…ter plants could not producethis (and thus not grow), and would die. There are some plants can survive with very small amounts of water,but with none there would be no chance of growth.
