What is ElectricFertilizer™?
ElectricFertilizer™ is all about finding ways to accelerate and improve the growth of plants and other ecological systems using technology. While I initially plan on targeting the use of electrical stimulation, eventually I’m planning on expanding to other forms of unconventional growing technologies.
Making plants grow faster using electricity??? Is this for real?
Yes it is! In my first blog post, “A New Way to Boost Your Garden’s Yield – Using Electricity
“, I give an overview of how I discovered this topic and a touch on some of the benefits. Below is a list of some of the main effects that can be observed in plants after they’ve been stimulated with electricity:
- Increased soil fertility
- Increased growth rate
- Thicker stem growth
- Greener leaf coloring
- Yield increases from 20 to 400%
- Larger sized fruits and vegetables
- Protection against fungal infections and other diseases
- And more!
Community-Based Research & Discovery
Ever since I attempted my first experiment and saw what was happening with my own eyes, I’ve been totally obsessed about this topic. And just about everyone who I talk to about my discovery is equally as fascinated as well. So, it my desire to get as many people as possible to start experimenting with these gardening methods and sharing their results here so we can help each other steer past some of the pitfalls that have perhaps prevented these methods from ever reaching mainstream status in the past.
In this site I will be sharing my knowledge and experience with you. As you learn more about electroculture and start experimenting on your own, I hope that you’ll come here to share your knowledge and experiences so we all can derive benefit.
Before I finish, I would like to take a moment to share my thoughts what’s possible using electroculture and other effective yet unconventional forms of gardening.
The world we live in is great flux – change is happening everywhere from the way we communicate, to our institutions, our governments, and our environment. One of the many issues I think we’ll be seeing more of is the problem of food: growth, distribution, and safety. With all of the major climate changes
going on like early frosts, or erratic weather patterns, it will become increasingly important to not only have our main food providers adapt to these changes, but it will likely become more important for us as everyday people to start growing our own food.
By growing our own food in plant or animal form, we not only feed ourselves safe & nutritious food, but we can all have the abundance that we can share with others. Some say that they don’t have enough room to grow anything – but I disagree… while literally tons of food could be grown within a quarter acre of land, significant amounts of it can potentially be grown by people living in smaller spaces by growing:
- On balconies
- On roof-top gardens
- Inside your home in jars, pots or hydroponic systems
- Or vertically against your windows
While growing in this manner is helpful, if we could start growing with electricity, then with boosted yields and minimized time to harvest, then more food can be grown in any space. Furthermore, crops grown outside could possibly beat the timing of mother nature, helping farmers harvest a nutritionally-superior crop not only sooner, but with greater yield and greater profit, too.
So, welcome to ElectricFertilizer.com, we wish you luck in all of your growing endeavors.
