Can you check if this is right? Do plants that have the most water in their cup grow the tallest? I think no because, how are plants going to grow when water is surrounding the plants and they might only grow a few millimeters.

Well actually, there are lots of plants in the water, and plants actually came from the water which is why they need water to grow! Examples of water plants are lilies, for example, or just plain old seaweed. So yes, plants can grow in water without any problem. But the question is: does water make plants grow the tallest? If I had two plants, and did the same to both so that they had fair conditions, but just gave the other more water, would it grow taller? Tallest? What makes a plant grow upwards is that they want to get closer to the sunlight. So in this case, water isn't the limiting factor.

No, i mean plants in a cup not in water Lol

I think you're right. Water doesn't make the plants grow, water only gives plants the nutrients they need. Sunlight and air makes them grow, although water does play a role in growing them but potentially water is not the main source of growth for plants.

well as the qn water makes taller the plant its not true it depends the amount of auxin hormone so water dosent play role in making tall the plant and now coming to ur qn abu plant growin in cup no still the same reason water only need by plant for photosynthesis and transpiration not for growth ok

Heena...the way you type confuses me..

I am not clear about some of the answers here. As shalle rightly notes, different plants need different amounts of water. Shalle cites water lillies as plants needing a lot, I cite cacti as plants needing a little. Placing either in an inappropriately wet or dry environment would stunt its growth and kill it. As shalle also notes, it would be possible to put two different plants of the same species in two different pots, give one more water than the other and sees which grows taller. But in addition to water level, you have another variable: plant type. If the species picked to run the experiment on is a water lilly, the one in more water will grow taller. If you pick a cactus, the one in less water will grow taller. Your result depends not on the absolute amount of water available to each plant but on whether the water available is appropriate for the particular species you picked. iCanHelp's response is also confusing: water doesn't help plants grow, but it gives them nutrients they need to grow? It could be clarified. ;D And heena says "water doesn't play a role in making tall the plant" - but if a plant doesn't have enough water it will fail to grow and die and if it has too much it will also die. Could also use some clarification. I would merely say that different species of plants require different amounts of water; if any plant has too much or too little water it will fail to grow and, in extreme cases, die.

here the matter is abu if we give more water the taller the plant is this true
blues

Yes, I certainly understand that. And my thought is that the answer depends on what kind of plant it is.

and in case of @shalle she told abu diff speciess need diff amount of water i agree but the main thing wat water do in plant it helps in transpiration and photosynthesis as far i knw there no relation of water with tallnes

She's not talking about different kinds of plants she's talking about regular plants. All plants need water to grow but like I said : Water is not the main source of growth for plants.

iCanHelp, what type of plant is a "regular" plant? I guess that "Regular" plants are like all other plants: too much or too little water would be equally bad for a 'regular plant. Heena, I'm not saying that you are wrong. I am saying that your answer isn't clear. First you say that plants need water to grow, they you seem to say that they don't need water to grow. Partyrainbow, we're not clear about the answer to your problem and are discussing it.

Well "blues" "regular" if you would like to fly to a stranded island in the middle of nowhere and find out what "different plants" are than you be my guest and do that.

iCanHelp, I'm not talking about exotic plants. And I am not saying that you are wrong, either: I am saying that your answer is unclear. Every plant would be hurt by too little or too much water, including the very ordinary and regular trees, grasses, shrubs, etcetera. I took the somewhat exotic catci and water lillies as examples because they have very different water requirements.

What you said is "Water doesn't make the plants grow, water only gives plants the nutrients they need. Sunlight and air makes them grow, although water does play a role in growing them but potentially water is not the main source of growth for plants." Where in that is "too much and too little water is equally harmful to plants and what constitutes 'too much' and 'too little' depends on the species?"

I am certainly not saying that anyone's answer is wrong; I am merely stating that the responses are unclear to me anyway.

I've done the plant expirement before, and you learn what the effects water and sunlight have on the growth of the plant. You also learn that plants tend to go in the direction the sunlight is coming from. Too much water, however, can destroy the plants. Too much water can kill humans so it can also kill plants. It's like your overdoing them, giving them too much nutrients they don't really need. (:

The questions are similar. I am not trying to get you to say that you are wrong. I am asking you to clarify your initial answer: "Water doesn't make the plants grow, water only gives plants the nutrients they need... Water does play a role in growing them but potentially water is not the main source of growth for plants." It still seems contradictory.

I said "She's cute" and if she doesn't like me saying that she can comment right here and say so, I didn't know it was ever bad to compliment someone on there looks, your argument is invalid..
