I assume you are talking about houseplants. Each kind of plant has slightly different requirements for water and nutrition. If you could tell us what k ind of plants these are we can make recommendations.

Without knowing what kinds of plants these are it is possible that the sugar water or baking soda could be at best, inadequate, and at worst, harmful to your plants.

We will look for a further response from you.
