How do you measure the health of a plant?
You can look at natural pollutants (e.g., motor oil, runoff from a busy street) or unusual substances (e.g., orange juice, baking soda ). Factors that you can measure include the rate of plant growth, leaf size, life/death of the plant, the color of the plant, and ability to flower/bear fruit.
