I watched the video. I know exactly what the guy is refering to when he mentions the tenz electric stimulator. I have used this same or similar kind of electric shocker on the back of my neck and on my lower back to loosen muscles. It would be interesting if someone would do an experiment with this device to see if there is any validity to what is acclaimed. 20% faster finish and 20% more yield? That's huge. But, who knows. The only way to find out for sure is to try it. Not sure of how much of an electrical charge to give the plant , but one would just have to experiment to find out.

Just started reading that link and I LOVE this first quote.

Quote:
"Reports that the characteristics acquired by the plants in electrically treated soils are transmitted by inheritance to the third generation are particularly interesting.
"Under the influence of the electrical current, the numerical proportions between hemp plants of different sexes was changed by comparison with the control to give an increased number of female plants by 20-25%, in conection with a reduction in the intensity of the oxidative processes in the plant tissues."

Thumbs up

i'm a fan of this stuff or the thought of it, i'd be up for trying it out if anyone
can think of an easy method for one of them. I thought the part about sound was interesting and fairly simple. cheers for the link


Quote:
5.8 ~ Sound

The growth of plants can be stimulated by sound alone. The effect continues up to 50 KHz. Frequencies of 4-5 KHz are particularly effective for increasing germination, enzyme activity, and respiration.

Normally, the streaming movement of protoplasm in plant cells slows down in the early morning and evening, but this streaming can be accelerated by an audio frequency generator used for 30 minutes at a distance of about 5 feet from the plants. As a result, the amount and rate of growth increases. Plants should not be treated thus for more than 3 hours daily, or the plants are likely to die within a month or two, depending on the quality of the sound and its intensity. Very loud, high frequency sound causes cellular disruption and death. Some rock'n roll music also does so.
A revolutionary process called "Sonic Bloom", invented by Dan Carlson, uses a 3 KHz tone (modulated to produce birdlike chirps and whistles) and a foliar spray (55 trace minerals, seaweed, gibberellin and amino acids) to produce "indeterminate growth in plants". His first success was with a Purple Passion houseplant that normally grows only about 18 inches. Under the influence of Sonic Bloom, the plant eventually grew over 1,200 feet, and earned itself a place in the Guinness Book of World Records. (29)

Growers using Sonic Bloom report dramatic increases in yield, better tasting vegetables and fruits, and more brilliant flowers. Cultivators can expect increased production and early maturity. Alfalfa sprouts will increase in weight by 1,200% within 3 days. The sprouts will have a much longer shelf life (2-3 weeks) than usual (3-4 days). Experiments with Sonic Bloom in Africa produced plants which survived extremely hot weather and flooding. Sonic Bloom also will produce fruit on first year trees. Apple farmers have reported triple-sized yields, 8-month shelf life, and a huge increase in nutrient values: 126% more potassium, 326% more chromium, 400% more iron, and 1,750% more zinc. Losses to diseases and pests have been reduced more than 80%. Because Sonic Bloom contains Gibberilic Acid (GA3), it cannot be used indiscriminately with hemp, as GA3 strongl affects the development of cannabis.

Otherwise, the possibilities are unlimited. For example, Carlson says:

Water is added to the concentrated Sonic Bloom formula. The cassette (containing a 3 KHz signal and nature sounds) is played at high volume with high treble and medium bass for 10 minutes before spraying the plants. The plants are then sprayed while the cassette is playing, and the sound is continued for another 20 minutes after spraying. Both sides of the leaves should be saturated. Treatment is best performed early in the morning (before 9 am), preferably in foggy weather. On cold mornings, spraying should be delayed until late afternoon. Do not spray plants when the temperature falls below 50o F. The formula also can be administered in the regular weather supply, by drip-feeding, hydroponics, etc. The nutrient solution should be applied once a month for the first month, then twice weekly thereafter. Seeds should be soaked in dilute nutrient solution for 8 hours or overnight while the sound tape is played continuously on a cassette deck with auto-reverse capability. Plant the seeds immediately. The tape ought to be played daily for at least 30 minutes during daylight hours.
Iirc Gibberilic Acid (GA3) is used to reverse sex in plants but could be a hormone for fruit

here's a little bit about the fella and the use of sound. i'd like to see for my self tbh

Quote:
After completing his duties in the armed forces, his knowledge of starvation’s horrors drove him to study how to feed the world’s hungry. He spent several years in the University of Minnesota Agricultural Experiment Station studying plant physiology. His research led him to the underside of plant leaves, where stomata – the microscopic doorways that open and shut – control the exchange of gases and moisture with the surrounding atmosphere.

If their was a way to coax open the stomata to greater widths and in greater numbers, Carlson reasoned, they could imbibe dew from the morning air even in arid regions and gulp any nutrients applied. Perhaps plants could thrive and produce food even in poor soils.

In 1972, Carlson discovered that certain oscillating sound frequencies stimulate stomata to open. Building on previous studies, he developed an unobtrusive and effective combination of sound frequencies, something like chirping crickets or birds. In fact, he said that over 90% of song birds sing in the same frequencies as Sonic Bloom. He said he believes birds have aided in the absorption of dews and trace minerals since the beginning of time.

His observations were confirmed by photomicrographs which showed wider apertures on Sonic Bloom-treated leaves. A Philips 505 Scanning Electron Microscope showed better stomata development on leaves treated with Sonic Bloom than a control.

Carlson and Holtz embedded the oscillating sound frequency in classical compositions and recorded cassettes and CDs to be used in a garden, greenhouse or home. For
larger operations, Carlson developed speakers that can be placed on poles throughout a field. The largest speaker system can broadcast the harmonics over 60 acres. Each speaker has a built in photo cell that turns the unit on at sunrise, with optimal spray time 45 minutes after the sound has activated. Systems should be left on for the remainder of the day. On days when not spraying, the harmonics help to take in more dew and CO2 in early morning and late afternoon, but playing them otherwise risks dehydration.

After discovering the special frequencies, Carlson then devoted 15 years to developing a growth-enhancing spray that could be applied after a sound treatment, while the stomata are still open. By tweaking the ingredients through an endless series of experiments, he found a formula that plants responded to the best when treated with the sound. His result was a seaweed extract that contains dozens of trace minerals and amino acids, as well as a naturally-derived plant hormone, gibberelic acid. Producers can either hand spray plants or use tractor-drawn spray equipment for larger operations.

Carlson explained that tests confirmed that the sound mechanismallows plants to absorb and translocate 700% more nutrients than unexposed plants. Not only that, he said that over-spray and tilledunder treated plants add major and minor elements to the soil. Results have been astounding yet the most widespread Sonic Bloom use is in nations outside of the United States. In Indonesia, where Sonic Bloom has doubled rice
yields, the minister of agriculture plans on growing all of the nation’s food with Sonic Bloom by 2009. International businesses are also interested in Sonic Bloom’s potential.

“It was 600 feet long when the Guinness Book sent their people over to measure it,” said Carlson. “They said, ‘well, you have the longest houseplant on record.’ And I know it grew at least double that at one point.”

Dr Mohan Ram also tested electrical currents on hemp for increased female to male ratio. He reported small increases.
But his ethylene from rooting fruit peals increased the Female to ratio almost 50% an improved gem rates.

im wondering if simply the electrical current or sound waves when administered to a plant further exite the chlorophyll molecules, thereby creating greater potential energy which would equate to an increase in ATP (biological energy)?

cheers
