Our Watering Method
We had four sets of three plants. The first set of plants
was watered with Lake Chelan Water. The second set of plants was watered
with Veroske Creek Water. The third set was watered with Dry Lake Water
and the fourth set received tap water as a control.
The plant that grew the most (80cm) over a five-week period received Tap
Water. The second largest plant (65cm) was the one watered with water from
pH Level: Lake Chelan and Veroske Creek had a pH level of 8. Dry
Lake had a pH level of 7.5.
Dissolved Gases in Water: Veroske Creek had the largest amount of
carbon dioxide (25mg/L) while the other water sources had smaller amounts
(10mg/L). We think the creek might have more CO2 because it
has a lot of vegetation.
