Each of those drinks would have a different
effect. All of them would end up hurting the
plants, except for maybe the apple juice.
This is because plants are very good at getting
all the nutrients they need from the soil. They
need water to do photosynthesis and to
maintain "turgid" - a fancy word for stiff
- so that they don't wilt.
Unlike in humans, the Gatorade would
dehydrate the plants because its has too much
salt. The milk would most likely be toxic
for them since it contains a lot of fats and
sugars, which the plants can't use. The
CO2 and sugars in the soda also would
not help the plants grow, and would dehydrate
them since it is so sticky and concentrated.
Apple juice might be ok for the plants since
its more watery than the other drinks and
might have nutrients the plants could use.
