The Q&A Archives: Science Fair Report On Drainage

Question: Hello, I have a project for my High School science fair on water drainage of house plants. It is winter here in New England, so my plants are inside in a well-lit room facing east. I have different groups of plants with no holes, 1, 2, 3, and 4 holes in the bottoms. The plants are all forget-me-nots. I was wondering if you had any suggestions or information that you could give me for this project. Time is running low and most of my plants have died.

Answer: You might try the following searchable site for information about potting mixes or media and drainage: and you might also want to look at the following site called Cyberfair which has lots of useful information about experiements in it. I hope this helps.
