    Well, chlorine is not toxic to plants, though i doubt it has a positive effect on them eiter. I'd say, the 1% bottle of chlorine has slightly shortened length of roots, and the 2% and 4% have a significant decrease. The plant fertiliser won't do anything in my opinion. for the length of the roots that is, the plant will grow a little faster, and the amount of fertiliser won't really matter much. More fertiliser, will have adverse effects on the plants, and it won't need longer roots, because it will get plenty nutrients. Plants will have shorter roots in chlorinated water, because it will need less protection.

    But, i'm not totally sure :P..


    Growing up, i marveled at star-trek's science, and ignored the perfect society. Now, i try to ignore their science, and marvel at the society.

    Imagine, being able to create matter out of thin air, and not coming up with using drones for boarding hostile ships. Or using drones to defend your own ship. Heck, using drones to block energy attacks, counterattack or for surveillance. Unless, of course, they are nano-machines in your blood, which is a billion times more complex..
