Will a Plant Grow Using Propel Fitness Water?

Propel fitness water, which contains sugars, salts and vitamins, will stunt the growth of plants, according to a study conducted by the Green Amigos of Bishop Dwenger High School in Fort Wayne, Indiana, whose work was reviewed by scientist mentor Jan Barber of the St. Louis University Department of Biology. Propel fitness water stunted the growth of sunflower seeds in the study. Propel's sugar and salts appeared to harm the plants, the students concluded, and its vitamins are not among the 18 elements, such as nitrogen and potassium, essential to plant growth.
