• Does electro-stimulation affect the taste of fruits, vegetables, nuts and grains?
What about their size?
• Does electrification affect diseased plants? Which plants? Which diseases?
• Does electrification help protect against insect infestation and damage?
After trying electroculture for a while, can you answer any of these questions yourself? To
help you along, below are a number of factors that can be adjusted.
Amount of Power
You can experiment with the effect of higher and lower voltages. Does using 9 volts
perform better than 5 volts? What about 12 volts? 50 volts? Please be aware that larger
amounts of power can be harmful not only to your plants, but also to animals and people,
too. Be sure to keep safety in mind. If you have any questions on these matters, it may be
worth talking things over with a licensed electrical contractor or engineer.
Time of Electrification
respond well to 24/7 stimulation?
For those who want to keep things as natural as possible, it may be worth it to think of
the Minimal Effective Dose 1 to get the benefits of stimulation without any of the risks that
come from soil or plant over-electrification.
Type of Electrodes
Try out different electrode materials. Despite being somewhat toxic in large quantities, the
original experimenters created earth batteries using plates of zinc and copper. Is there a
difference from the use of iron versus stainless steel? What about heat-tempered metals?
