Plant Growth and Media
I wuold like to know how does soil,dirt and compost affect plants in the
way they grow.
Many plants grow in soil. The soil provides the plants with moisture
(water) and nutrients (food). The roots of the plant anchor or support the
plant in the soil. The air provides the plants with carbon dioxide (to make
food, grow, and to make oxygen for us).
