In this informal experiment, a friend plugged in two different sets of bean seeds from the same package…. The bean sprouts on the left were plugged in using an Earth & Grow prototype. The bean sprouts on the right were not.
We are still not 100% sure how reconnecting plants to the Earth affects them in every situation. Some plants germinate faster and emerge through the soil strong, stocky, healthy and vibrant. Others prefer to be plugged in as young seedlings. Honing in on how the Earth’s energy affects every plant, in every situation, during each stage of growth, is a very exciting challenge that we welcome with open minds!!
This informal experiment was performed during December 2011. This was our Christmas tree. We plugged it in using a Earth & Grow prototype to see what would happen…
We have observed pines regrowing when brought into warmer growing conditions before… but never anything like this!!
Most civilized societies today have become focused on insulating themselves and other organisms from the “unsanitary” Earth in order to have “clean” controlled living environments.
Humans wear insulated shoes, live in elevated homes, drive in cars, and live completely disconnected from the Earth.
After the horticultural explosion of the Victorian period, greenhouses and indoor growing became very popular. Eventually new techniques utilizing heating and artificial lighting to grow “controlled” plants indoors were developed.
Today, billions of plants have become insulated from the Earth with the wide spread use of plastic pots.

Dr. Christy Westen presents our sunflower and daffodil bulb experiments at the 2011 Longevity Now Conference. The experiments on grounding sunflowers and other plants have amazing parallels to grounding humans.
