I am doing a science project on the best time to
feed plants. I have found that I had the best results with the
plants that i watered in the evening (one other plant was watered
in the morning, and one other in early afternoon). Why is this? Why
is the plant I watered at night bigger and nicer than those that i
watered at the other times?
The following presents another side of the picture since caution needs to
be observed when watering in the evening to avoid fungal problems with
Except for the variable of time of day/evening, the other variables would
need to be constant for an accurate comparison (i.e., amount of water,
species (type) of plant, type of soil, temperature, humidity, etc.)
