  1. Here's the PP summary if you don't want to view the entire document; In 2010, I was doing electrical experiments with roots and noticed that roots were strongly attracted to water drops on the side of the test container (see slides 14-17). I felt that surface tension could be causing this attraction. The roots have a negative voltage (see slides 7-10)and the water drops have exposed hydrogen bonds (Slide 13). This electrostatic attraction would be increased if the earth’s electric field is polarizing and aligning the water molecules (Slides 18-21). In 2011, I constructed a tes
  2. Thank you for your comments, The below image mostly shows roots and geotropism, however the sharply curled root on the right tube is attracted to a water drop. Because of surface tension forming the drop there are many exposed hydrogen bonds. And because the root tip reads voltage with the negative lead , the negative polarity charge at the root tip is electrostatic-ally attracted to the drops exposed hydrogen bonds. Given that simple model, it is logical to assume an electrostatic attraction to water vapor.
  3. Those are interesting websites. Maybe in the future I'll be able to do nutrient research in plants, but for now I need to stick on topic, and that is to find evidence of the unknown particle I believe is responsible for both plant and snowflake growth and geometry. I've done some specific tests trying to find evidence of the particle, but I don't have conclusive enough evidence to claim a proof. This picture shows roots being attracted to humidity vapor coming from the lower corner, which makes sense until you realize that the water molecules can't electrostatic-ally pull the root unless they
  4. Tree branches can grow together but usually don't. When a branch is surrounded or "trapped" by the electric field of neighboring branches it will take the path of least resistance. If it's internal charge and corresponding electric field is stronger than the electric field it is growing into, it will grow towards another branch. If it's electric field isn't strong enough, it's charged particles stop flowing and it dies (abscission). This is where I think most of the twigs and branches come from under a tree. Some healthy branches are broken off in the wind and you can see the fresh break. The
  5. Thanks for your comments. I'm only doing root experiments for now. You can see the test chamber at the Roots to Water topic. Attached is my ppt showing roots being stunted or killed by 10 VDC. I re-compressed it to reduce the file size. I think a large tree's electric field "overshadows or dominates" a small trees electric field and limits growth, not lack of sunlight. Just like a +3 charge overpowers a +1 charge. Roots Affected by Electricity.ppt
  6. Your point is well taken. I wasn't trying to say the electric trees were a proof, rather their existence shows a 3D physical copy of electric field lines of force. The possibility remains open however that real plants and snowflakes owe their shape to electric lines of force. And the evidence in trees is all around for everyone to see. All plants and snowflakes are born into and grow immersed in the earth's electric field. Plant meristem cells have a high metabolic rate and probably produce more electricity than any of the other plant cells. So the soft growing tips have a charg
  7. I wanted to post this topic by itself. It was part of "Plant and Snowflake Growth" but received no comments. I also updated the original Roots Attraction to Water to include Water Vapor. I also had to compress files to fit under the memory cap. I am new to this and foolishly added too many files to Plant and Snowflake Growth. I have other topics to post in the coming months and charged particles are the common thread. Thanks for your interest!
  8. Here's a picture of an "electric tree". It's made by supercharging a plexiglass block and then touching a grounding point at the base. The result of the extremely fast discharge is an electric tree. So here is a 3D solid copy of electric field lines of force made completely different from real plants and snowflakes but ending up looking the same. I started a new topic called "Roots Attraction to Water", but first needed to delete the original "Roots to Water" PP from this topic to fit under the memory cap.
  9. Any comments about my theory of how roots are attracted to water in this PP would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Roots to Water.ppt
  10. The DLA pictures I googled appear "almost' plantlike. Limiting where the particles can attach partially mimics what I'm saying about repulsion between branches except there is no symmetry as displayed by both plants and snowflakes. The computer simulations also lack symmetry. The "Lichtenburg figures" (which are created with electrical forces) however do very closely model plant growth. Thank you for your responses. From Wikipedia; Statoliths: sensing gravity In the root cap (a tissue at the tip of the root) there is a special subset of cells, called statocytes. Inside t
  11. I believe branching occurs because of internal particle pressure, which would occur when the plant roots attract more and more charged particles as they grow. The extra particles force a new branch to start. The particles are contained in the roots and stems veins by Total Internal Reflection just like fiber optics. When branching occurs sometimes cankers grow, and I think this is evidence of the veins and particles flowing in a whirling pattern. The 3D solid copy of electric field lines of force are only for woody plants and snowflakes. Plants or branches which do not harden behind the gr
  12. I googled "hydrogen bonded networks in ice" and found 2002 research from Japan. They used computer simulation (Molecular Dynamics) to get an algorithm which successfully described the snowflake in the early stages. However, I don't know if their model can predict dendrite to dendrite repulsive field effect. Likewise, plant growth processes have chemical explanations, but fail to explain branch to branch or tree to tree repulsive field effect. It is possible I am way off base, the problem is the upward flowing charged particles are necessary to solve several of my theories listed previ
  13. Yes, I understand. My theories are definitely not mainstream. I originally thought of posting directly to Speculation. However, as Albert Einstein once said, "Imagination is more important than knowledge". And from what I see on the Science channel, I don't think the science community has forgotten that. My goal was and still is to have some good discussions about plants, snowflakes, gravity, DM/DE, tornadoes, lightning, stream sinuosity and the plant experiments I am doing. Thanks
  14. The 3D solid copy of electric field lines of force are created in plants by confined charged particles (gravitons) flowing through the plant. The soft growing tips of the plant change direction finding the path of least resistance between the combination of the earths electric field and neighboring branches electric field. Lignin stiffens the branch to form the 3D solid copy of the plants electric field lines of force. All branches want to grow vertical and directly away from gravity (geotropism). If the branch is curving it is because of an electric field influence. If branches were just "rea
  15. I only have a 10 VDC supply. I got the impression the root tip had to be very close to the charged surface to have an effect. So yes more voltage might be good. Here's more evidence. The sprouted seeds are showing voltage. When the seed absorbs water, chemical activity begins which is also probably producing electricity.The meristem cells at the root tip and the shoot tip do a lot of cell division causing the plant to grow and are also a likely source of electricity. I don't think the plant produces enough electricity however to cause the field effect around plants which cause them to be r
