Microwaved Water

Not my project...but nontheless a pretty interesting conclusion was drawn-

Perhaps some more plants would be helpful.

it seems to me you can´t take any conclusions based on only two plants... it may have nothing to do with the water.
Are there any more details available?

I didn't do the experiment, but I was thinking the same thing, they probably should have used more plants and perhaps used more controls.

I know you didn't do it. I was just asking if you knew something more about it.
I totally agree with you about the controls... it could be very interesting though.

Is there any difference between micrwaved water and purified water?
maybe microwaved water absorbes some radiation?

Interesting :)
But are those new cuttings or were the plants newly potted?
I would try it with more established plants and repeat several more times to be conclusive.

@witch

pretty sure radiation can't be stored, it gets radiated away...radioactive materials is another thing...

ok..maybe plant died because there is no oxygen in the water.when we heat water,all oxygen molecules escape.

Plants don't breathe oxygen from water.

In theory they do, but the disolved oxygen from the water you add would not contribute significantly to the total oxygen in the soil. The air simply difuses from the atmosphere into the soil...

the "microwaved water" plant looks like it was defoliated... I dont' see any evidence of the former leaves having fallen off, they simply aren't there, and the stems look like they've been clipped.
