    It is controlled because the host of the experiment is allowed to choose what he wants to input and leave out of his experiment. The manipulated variable is that of the fertilizer...how one control group has fertilizer and the other group is without fertilizer. It is a variable in his experiment, and really that is the only one. Hope this helps. Welcome To Open Study! :)
