Results from my 120 days of electro-growing as an easy way to make garden plants grow faster and stronger.
Electro-growing is being talked about in the gardening community as an easy way to encourage plant growth at a more active and vigorous pace.
Below is a short video electro culture life This is a summary of how and why.
Presumably, copper wire harnesses the free electrons in the air to nourish and fertilize the soil, which in turn triggers rapid and strong plant growth.
Plants fed by electroculture are believed to be more resistant to pests. Some argue that you don’t even need to fertilize your plants at all…. Free electrons nourish the soil.
Results of electroculture
Since the soil in Florida where I live is sandy and low in nutrients, I figured my yard and garden would be perfect for electro-growing.
About 120 days ago, I got some copper wire, wrapped some bars around it, and tried the process myself.
This is a brand of copper wire I bought
Unfortunately, the results weren’t that great. In two of the three cases, a copper-wound bar “antenna” was placed on the south side of the factory to maximize the effect of the Earth’s magnetic field.
Sadly, in all three of my attempts, the non-electrified plants actually outperformed those with an electroantenna nearby 🙁
Below is a picture of my results.
passion fruit seedlings
The first picture below shows the difference in growth of passion fruit seedlings with and without electroculture.
As you can see, the seedlings with antennas grow significantly slower than those without the help of copper wire antennas.
Both were planted and sprouted at the same time. The copper wound antenna was installed when the seedlings were about the same size.
potted landscape plants
My second example is two bougainvillea landscape plants that have partially died from the winter freeze.
They were in about the same recovery stage 4 months before I installed a copper wire electroculture antenna in one of the pots (the south side of the plant) to see if the plants would recover faster.
Unfortunately, it wasn’t.
As you can see, potted plants without antennas are well advanced in the recovery process.
We also tested electro-growing on two young moringa trees.
Unlike the previous example above, the trees were growing directly into the ground. Perhaps this will affect the results?
Once again, trees growing without the help of electroculture antennas grow faster and with stronger clips than trees with antennas.
Like the bougainvillea above, these trees were also damaged by last winter’s freeze.
I cut them back at the same spot on the stem and put an electroculture antenna next to one of them to see if they recover/grow faster.
As you can see, trees without antennas grow remarkably well.
Is electroculture really effective?
The claims surrounding electroculture are very compelling, with some sources saying that electroculture is the solution to world hunger.
Unfortunately my personal attempts to get it working on my premises failed 3 out of 3 times.
What am I doing wrong (if any)? I’d appreciate any input from those with more experience on this subject.
I hope electric farming is real and a real principle that home gardeners can use to increase production cheaply and easily.
But so far, our house has not lived up to the hype.
