Does a plant grow bigger if watered by milk or water?
Question Date: 2010-03-05
Answer 1:

I would guess water - plants aren't too fond of salt, and milk has some salt in it. The things we like in milk aren't useful to plants. Also, milk has a lot of calcium in it, and plants need magnesium more than they need calcium.
