Hi there,

I am working on a school project that involves designing a plant and
greenhouse system on Mars. We would like to use the Arabidopsis plant.

Do you know how much water one plant uses in its life cycle? Is there
a web site or publication that discusses this? I know this plant can 
be modified for low water requirements, but have not been able to find 
a paper discussing the water usages of this version either.

Thank you for your time,
   Ken Mankoff
