heres my reasoning behind the experiment, plants make sugar via photosynthesis, sugar is energy, so the sugar we eat must be like granular energy, right?
well i took 2 D. adelae leaves, same size. i placed one in a glass of pure water, and the second one in a glass with 3 tsp. of sugar mixed in. it's been several weeks (some of you might remember when i tore my adelae plants apart) and the one in sugar water has about twice as many plantlets, though still small, they are much larger than the one in pure water. both leaves are fully submerged.
i change the water and sugar water ever other day. they are in the same windowsill side by side.
hope this works! my experiments of feeding neps sugar inspired this. my next project is feeding drosera and pings granular sugar.
