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

My 120-day outcomes with electroculture as a straightforward technique to encourage backyard crops to develop sooner and extra robustly.

Electroculture is buzzing within the gardening neighborhood as a straightforward strategy to encourage the expansion of crops at a extra brisk and strong tempo.

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

Supposedly, the copper wire harnesses the free electrons within the air to nourish and fertilize the soil, which sparks fast and strong plant progress.

Vegetation nourished by electroculture are supposedly extra proof against pests. Some declare that you just don’t even must fertilize the crops in any respect …. the free electrons nourish the soil for you.

My Outcomes with Electroculture

Because the soil the place I dwell 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 circumstances, 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 🙁

Under are the images of my outcomes.

Ardour Fruit Vine Seedlings

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

As you may 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 similar time. The copper-wrapped antenna was positioned when the seedlings had been roughly the identical dimension.

Potted Panorama Vegetation

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 sooner.

Sadly, it didn’t.

As you may 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 timber.

In contrast to the earlier examples above, the timber had been rising instantly within the floor. Maybe this may 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 sooner and strong clip than the tree that has one.

As with the bougainvillea above, these timber had 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 one in all them to see if it could get better/develop sooner.

As you may 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 flawed (if something)? I’d recognize any enter these of you who’re extra skilled with this may present.

I’d love for electroculture to be true and an precise precept residence gardeners may use to extend manufacturing inexpensively and simply.

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