Do plants only drink water?

    Plants absorb water and dissolved nutrients in the soil by the roots. The roots lead to the xylem and phloem of the plant, essentially the circulation system. The xylem carries the water up to the leaves where photosynthesis can convert this water to glucose with carbon dioxide from the air and sunlight. The phloem transports this glucose and nutrient rich sap to other parts of the plant, nourishing the cells throughout it. If you were to water a plant with some other type of liquid, it would potentially poison the plant and not be a good idea.
