    you here all the hype about eletrical into soil and such

    well to make a plant grow amazing heres a thought we as growers introduce NPK into our medium which brokn down is molecules all molecules have magnetic propertys almost everything does
    as you mix your food the molecules start spinning and when you pour it into your medium it spins and slowly slows down
    here is a trick

    in soil when tranplanting add about 2 "- 3" of soil on bottom and place a dime size magnet in the middle of your pot then cover more soil on top of this
    then transplant your plant into it as you normally would do and wa la you have created a magnetic field once you pour your food into it it will keep molecules active longer thus creating vigirious growth :))
    your plans ill grow taller and faster then ever before

    give it a try you be surprised :mrgreen::mrgreen::mrgreen::hump:

    alright, you made me go and google it. interesting stuff. i found some articles that indicate that magnets placed below plants made the plants grow larger than normal, so it stands to reason that mj would benefit. i actually came accross some pretty bold claims, like 39% increase in growth and whatnot. there's a lot of info on magnetizing seeds to increase germination. apparently the magnets increase some kind of protien in the seed. lots of articles about magnetizing the water, also. not much info about magnets and mj though, and not a whole lot of info on actually implimenting the magnets. i'm a little surprised that i haven't seen more threads about this here. i'm wondering how magnets might affect indoor grow equipment.

    I imagine this will be about as effective as those magnetic bracelets people wear for health. Plants tend to be not as susceptible to marketing.

    well you here people saying music will make a plant happy anyone ever think it could be the magnets in the speakers :))
    i read that for instance you mix your food and pour it in your medium thats all it does is just pour in with a magnit the molecules will litterally stand up thus possibly giving root sysem easier access

    just make some food up mix it good and leave it alone next day look at it you will notice in top its all water i know you will se most nutrients on bottom

    goin to make a mixture and throw in a magnet lets hope this works lol

    I tried taking a small power supply, like 9 volts or so (don't recall exactly) and hooking it to two nails and sticking them in the soil. Didn't seem to have a noticeable effect, though articles say it's supposed to. Could help keep soil borne pests down though. They probably wouldn't like getting constantly jolted.

    About the magnets, what if you used those super-magnets like they have in hard drives? Should make them grow like buggers. If you put two of those magnets together it's very difficult to get them apart, they're that strong. I got a couple when I took a HD apart once. I'll stick them in and see what happens. I wonder if it matters what direction you put them in, like with the poles vertical or horizontal. I guess probably vertical like the Earth's field, with the North pole up.

    I actually just did it. I put one in on one side of the stem of a plant in a small pot and the other on the other side, both with the poles in the same direction, don't know if it's North or South though. Guess you would need a compass to tell, by holding it near the poles of the magnet. The HD magnets are very thin, so they were easy to stick in.

    With respect ... the sort of magnetic field needed to align ordinary molecules is in the kiloTeslas. That is stronger than the field doing this.
    You posted an image of a magnetorheological fluid aka ferrofluid. It has much different behavior from anything a hydroponic practitioner encounters. The red particles behave like teenytiny iron filings. Jmo

    not sure how much magnetics is needed but of you can gain up to 30 + percent in growth then normal its well looking into wouldn't you think

    since plants
    are being exposed to low-level magnetic fields as a consequence of power
    lines and other industrial technology, but it is very far from being
    understood. Most of the research into this topic is published in Russian
    scientific journals, and are therefore difficult to locate, but are
    summarized in a review article by Belyavskaya (2004) in the journal
    Advances in Space Research (see reference below). The bibliography of that
    paper has many references that could be helpful to you.

    Weak electromagnetic fields (WEF) are generally thought to suppress the
    growth of plants and reduce cell division (arrest cells in G1 phase – the
    ‘growth phase’ leading up to cell division). A study by Sytnik et al.
    (1984) reported that the growth of wheat, pea, and sugar beet roots was
    significantly inhibited by WEF. In contrast, a study by Celestino and
    co-workers (2000) reported that weak electromagnetic fields (WEF) increase
    the germination of oak seeds (aka, acorns) and their subsequent growth
    (shoot length, dry weight). Similarly, Alexander and Doijode (1995) found
    that onion and rice seeds exposed to a WEF for 12 h showed significantly
    increased germination, shoot and root lengths, and fresh and dry weight of
    seedlings. M.V. Carbonell et al. (2000) confirmed that these low-frequency
    magnetic fields increase the germination rate and percentage of rice seeds.
    However, a study by Govoroon et al. (1992) observed no effect of WEF on the
    growth of pea, flax, and lentil seeds. These variable and contradictory
    results seem to suggest that the effects of magnetic fields on plants may
    be species-specific (e.g., stimulate growth certain plant species, inhibit
    growth in some species, and have no effect on others). Even though all of
    these studies use “weak electromagnetic fields”, the exact intensity of the
    magnetic field is also going to be an important variable. Levels of calcium
    (Ca++) inside of plant cells increases following exposure to magnetic
    fields, which is one of the proposed mechanisms by which magnetic fields
    may affect plants. Calcium ions (Ca++) participate in many plant growth
    processes and responses to stress (heat and salt stress, wounding, etc.).
    Another potential mechanism is being explored by NASA, which has done some
    research showing that magnetic fields may also affect the position of
    starch grains (aka amyloplasts) within plant cells, which will influence
    the direction of growth of the plant (a phenomenon called geotaxis). See:

    I think in addition to power lines and lines and other industrial technology ...You have to include the earths own magnetic fields your compass points north showing the power of this natural force ...Than the link between electricity and magnetization One fact that i would like to point out is that Electricity, Light, Radio Waves , are all part of the same force whch is energy...every piece of matter on this earth is energy...The distinction between waves and particles becomes rather blurred in light of quantum mechanics. The photoelectric effect tells us that light can behave as though it's made of particles, while "particles" like the electron, sometimes act like waves.electromagnetic waves (or photons),
