I'm doing a science experiment on sugar water and beans. I observed that the bean plants watered with the sugar solution tended to stay moist longer than the normal water. Why does this happen? PS. I have the beans in (forgive my US measurements) 1.5 cups of potting soil. I water them with 1/3 cups of water for each plant. On one group, I add 2 teaspoons of sugar to the 1/3 cup of water, in anoter group I add 1 teaspoon, and I use normal water for the last group.
