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

Desk of Contents[Hide][Show]

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

Electroculture is buzzing within the gardening group as a simple strategy to encourage the expansion of vegetation at a extra brisk and sturdy tempo.

Beneath is a brief video from that summarizes the way it’s carried out 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 progress.

Vegetation nourished by electroculture are supposedly extra proof against pests. Some declare that you just don’t even must fertilize the vegetation 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 assumed my backyard and yard can 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 circumstances, I positioned the copper-wrapped stick “antennas” on the south facet 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 vegetation with an electroculture antenna close by 🙁

Observe 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.

Beneath are the images of my outcomes.

Ardour Fruit Vine Seedlings

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

As you possibly can see, the seedling with an antenna is rising considerably slower than the one with out the assistance of a copper wire antenna.

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

Potted Panorama Vegetation

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

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

Sadly, it didn’t.

As you possibly can see, the potted plant with out an antenna is considerably additional alongside within the restoration course of.

Moringa Bushes

I additionally examined electroculture with my two younger moringa bushes.

Not like the earlier examples above, the bushes have been rising immediately within the floor. Maybe this might have an effect on the outcomes?

Apparently not.

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

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

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

As you possibly can 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 3 times.

What am I doing fallacious (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 may use to extend manufacturing inexpensively and simply.

However to this point, it isn’t dwelling as much as the hype at my home.
