Cool results but these experiment are wrong with the control samples.
The result may change if you boil the purified water (using an electric or gas cooking stove).
The concentration of Dissolve Oxygen may be important, not only directly to the plant but also affect soil microbial population.
However, I will confirm some physical properties of microwaved water, I'm in tissue culture. Oh my God, that's impossible!!

i recently conducted a similar experiment for my high school freshman science project. i had two plants for each variable, one set being watered with just tap water, the other two plants being watered by water that had been boiled in a glass mug in the microwave then allowed to cool. it ended up that it didnt affect the growth at all.
