All plants go through a process called photosynthesis. Photosynthesis takes the light, water, and nutrients from the soil to create sugar to be used as the plants food source. Results of many scientific experiments show that plants grow better when watered with sugar water.
Things You'll Need
- 50 grams Sugar
- 1 liter Water
- Watering can
Boil one liter of water. You can do this in a microwave, or in a pot over the stove. If you do it in a microwave, make sure you use a microwave-safe bowl.
Add 50 grams of sugar to the boiling water and remove it from the heat. Stir until all of the sugar has been absorbed into the water.
Let the sugar water cool for one hour before placing it in a watering can.
Water your plant with the sugar water solution until the soil is damp, but not flooded.
Use plain water for the next two days and on the third day use a batch of sugar water. Repeat this cycle.
Tips & Warnings
- Boil the water directly in a tea kettle and use that as a watering can.
- Do not feed your plant more than 50 grams of sugar. Too much sugar will kill the plant.
