Does Electroculture Actually Work? My 120-Day Experiment (Images)

Desk of Contents[Hide][Show]

My 120-day outcomes with electroculture as a simple methodology to encourage backyard crops to develop quicker and extra robustly.

Electroculture is buzzing within the gardening neighborhood as a simple approach to encourage the expansion of crops at a extra brisk and sturdy tempo.

Under is a brief video from that summarizes the way it’s completed and why to do it.

Supposedly, the copper wire harnesses the free electrons within the air to nourish and fertilize the soil, which sparks speedy and sturdy plant development.

Crops nourished by electroculture are supposedly extra immune to pests. Some declare that you simply don’t even must fertilize the crops in any respect …. the free electrons nourish the soil for you.

My Outcomes with Electroculture

For the reason that soil the place I reside in Florida is sort of sandy and low in vitamins, I believed my backyard and yard could be an ideal candidate for electroculture.

Roughly 120 days in the past, I procured copper wire and wrapped a number of sticks to check out the method for myself.

This is the brand of copper wire I bought.

Sadly, the outcomes have been lower than spectacular. In two of the three instances, I positioned the copper-wrapped stick “antennas” on the south aspect of the plant to maximise the consequences of the earth’s magnetic subject.

Sadly, in all three of my makes an attempt, the non-electroculture plant really grew higher than the crops with an electroculture antenna close by ????

Notice that we’ve had loads of thunderstorms in our space to permit the rods to “harvest” the electrical energy within the air.

Our property additionally has zero EMFs as measured with my EMF reader. Thus, interfering EMFs was not the issue both.

Under are the pictures of my outcomes.

Ardour Fruit Vine Seedlings

The primary image under reveals the distinction within the development of ardour fruit seedlings with and with out electroculture.

As you’ll be able to see, the seedling with an antenna is rising considerably slower than the one with out the assistance of a copper wire antenna.

Each had been planted and sprouted on the identical time. The copper-wrapped antenna was positioned when the seedlings had been roughly the identical measurement.

Potted Panorama Crops

My second instance is of two bougainvillea panorama crops that had been partially killed off by a winter freeze.

They had been at roughly the identical stage of restoration 4 months in the past after I positioned a copper wire electroculture antenna in one of many pots (south aspect of the plant) to see if the plant would get better quicker.

Sadly, it didn’t.

As you’ll be able to see, the potted plant with out an antenna is considerably additional alongside within the restoration course of.

Moringa Timber

I additionally examined electroculture with my two younger moringa bushes.

In contrast to the earlier examples above, the bushes had been rising straight within the floor. Maybe this is able to have an effect on the outcomes?

Apparently not.

As soon as once more, the tree rising with out assistance from an electroculture antenna is rising at a quicker and sturdy clip than the tree that has one.

As with the bougainvillea above, these bushes had been broken by a freeze final winter.

I reduce them again to the identical spot on the trunk after which positioned the electroculture antenna subsequent to considered one of them to see if it could get better/develop quicker.

As you’ll be able to see, the tree with out an antenna is rising considerably higher.

Does Electroculture Actually Work?

The claims surrounding electroculture are very compelling with some sources saying it’s the reply to world starvation.

Sadly, my private makes an attempt to make it work on my property have failed three out of thrice.

What am I doing mistaken (if something)? I might respect any enter these of you who’re extra skilled with this may present.

I might love for electroculture to be true and an precise precept dwelling gardeners might use to extend manufacturing inexpensively and simply.

However thus far, it isn’t dwelling as much as the hype at my home.
