What is electro-culture?
Gardening has always been a delightful and rewarding hobby. What if we told you there’s a way to take it to a whole new level? Electroculture is a method of using conductive metals to create antennas to capture free atmospheric ions and channel them to the soil, significantly increasing plant growth.
Electroculture is a simple method of applying atmospheric (free) electricity to significantly increase plant growth. Using basic materials like copper wire (and/or magnets) to vitalize the soil and increase yields by 100% - 300%.The idea is to apply an electric current to growing plants; doing so, for some unknown reason, may increase yields. A conical coil of stiff wire wound with 9 turns (counter-clockwise in the Northern Hemisphere, clockwise in the Southern), when stuck in the ground about 1 ft. north of a plant, will collect atmospheric electricity. Connect a wire from the fence to a metal rod near the plants. A tv antenna also can be used.
In fact, there are two different approaches to electroculture: A first approach uses low-voltage electricity (12 volts) in agriculture and nursery gardening, with a procedure that is as simple as it is effective: being the currents are conductor materials such as iron or copper, in the form of bars or spirals around which the plant twists. Energy attracting devices can be built anywhere and by anyone using raw materials such as copper, iron, aluminum and wood, easily recyclable or available at low cost cost. In this way, for example, it is possible to revive abandoned products, recycle, revitalize metals, objects, waste, electrical cables from old systems, scrapped appliances. Copper wire is used in gardening to deter pests and promote plant growth. Placing around plants or in the soil can create an electric charge that deters slugs, snails, and other small pests from feeding on the plants.
The applications are many and many still unknown (Man, Animals, Plants, Water… ecosystem… etc.), once implemented, nature will do all the rest with new dynamics and characteristics to be discovered and observed. The 9- and 12-gauge wires (available at any standard craft store) are flexible enough to bend and shape but sturdy enough to hold the weight of the plant. Electroculture antennas help to capture atmospheric energy. The captured energy moves to the soil via the conductive antenna material, concentrating in the soil around your plants. Increasing your soil’s negative charge works to help increase the attraction of positively-charged ions. This prevents them from washing deep into the soil, away from plants roots.
Electroculture is reported to encourage plants to grow larger, with much larger flowers, and fruits being yielded.YouTube and TikTok is alive with videos of gardeners using basic materials, like copper (pipes or wire), galvanised wire, and/or magnets, to vitalize the soil and reporting yield increases of 100% – 300%. Electroculture gardening has been explained as: “it is not electricity as we know it, but a breath of energy, which stimulates and increases the vitality of the soil.”
Electroculture Gardening is a rediscovery of a long-lost method of gardening. It uses conductive metal antennas, such as copper, or galvanised steel wires, to capture negative ions in the atmosphere, storing them in the soil. The process is a methodology to enhance the earth’s natural magnetism to benefit your plants.
