Sounds like a great experiment. Take daily measurements of plant growth and observe the color of the leaves and stems. Different liquids effect the growth of plants
in different ways. For instance, the carbon in soda water can help the bean plant grow a little faster; the acidity of the Coke and apple juice can slow the growth; sugar usually stunts the root growth. I hope you learn lots from your experiment!
