Will watery media like coffee, milk or soda allow a plant to grow and thrive as well as plain water would?
Question Date: 2013-10-06
Answer 1:

I suggest you do an experiment to find out!

Most plants grow best in water with low salt concentrations, and most of those fluids have higher salt concentrations than ordinary water. However, plants do need some salt, so I don't know. Again, experiment!
