Question

What are the ideal attributes of soil for plant growth?

Answer

Moist and tightly packed soil is ideal for plant growth as it allows the most nutrients from the soil in when it is tight and water is also crucial to photosynthesize.

Moist and tight soil is ideal for plant growth since it retains enough water and pressure to allow nutrients to be absorbed by the plants which is necessary for photosynthesis. This type of soil can often be found in areas with high rainfall and where the soil has been heavily compacted. Loose soil with moisture present can cause plants to have trouble taking in nutrients and water.
