what plants need

we did a great experiment over the last 10 days
papaya need to find out the effect that sun, water and air have on plants
we bought three plants
plant 1 went in the window (sun) and got no water
plant 2 went in the closet (no sun) and got watered regularly
plant 3 went in the window (sun) and got watered regularly
they all started out the same size and turned out very different in the end
even between plant 2 and 3, there was a big difference in size and colour
it was a really good hands of way for her to learn the effects of sun, air and water
i do feel bad about killing a perfectly good plant though!

Good experiment. The same would happen to our children if we didn't give them spiritual food!!!
So when is the best time to call you? The last few times we have gotten no answer........

Wow, I'm surprised how well the plant that was in the closet did without sun. You can tell that the leaves are a faded green from not getting sun, cool experiment! Hopefully now the second plant will start to thrive more:)
