[R] Help about iterations

Sorry by this newbie stat doubt, but with some brains in the list anybody can 

I have a sistem composed by 3 quantitative variables.
The variables are:

The growth (Y in cm)
The nutrient (X1 in gram)
The water (X2 in ml)

My doubt is:
Is correct or necessary make a iterations of the nutrient and water, or the 
iteraction is intrinsical of the model. 




Working with one quantitative explanatory variable e one qualitative 
explanatory variable (with some levels), I understandy the iteration of 
quantitative x qualitative, for testing the curve inclination. But when I 
have some quantitative explanatory variables, the iteration generate a new 
vector by x1*x2 and the number generated by this vector is no sense 
(30g*2ml=60 and 2g*30ml=60, but is very different). 

I need to make iteraction or not?

A less important question:

How to make a plot with this and a curve of this?
the curve function use only one x, I have two or more x in same function.

Thanks and sorry again
