why sugar water make plant grow faster

Report as

Sugar water does not make plants grow faster. In fact, watering a plant with sugar water will usually harm it because it makes soil water less available to the plant. In technical terms, it lowers the water potential of the soil water by lowering the osmotic potential. Water flows from higher to lower water potential. The water potential in the plant must be lower than the soil water potential in order for water to flow from the soil into the plant.
