The enhancement in plant growth can be spectacular.

Can oxygen or CO2 ions in the air really help the growth of plants?

Yes. There is much evidence that air ions may assist in the greenhouse and horticulture fields.

  • We have several books in our reference libraries that show many experiments in the field of electro-horticulture. In every experiment, increasing the level of air ions around the vegetation increased the plant growth.
  • A young customer of ours won a science fair project proving that her cabbages and other vegetables grew much larger in the presence of negative ions. She went on to win Best Of State with this project.
  • Our own limited experiments with cucumber plants have verified these claims.
  • The book The Ion Effect, by Fred Soyka, mainly deals with the effects of negative ions on people, but it further indicates that negative ion generators make plants grow faster. Here's a few excerpts from the book:

"Scientists at the University of California grew barley, oats, lettuce, and peas with a total of only sixty positive ions and negative ions and found that growth was stunted and the plants were diseased. The same experiment in air with more than double the natural number of ions produced accelerated growth."

"In the 1960s one U.S. Department of Agriculture scientist grew seedlings in ion-enriched air and produced cucumbers eighteen inches longer than normal."

"Photosynthesis could not take place without ions in the atmosphere".

"In a Faraday cage, where the outside electrical fields are excluded, plants grow only about half the size they would if rooted in the garden."

The book lists some experiments dating back to Benjamin Franklin (who did some of this stuff). They placed charged electrodes over plants and found that they grew faster.

Comtech Research can provide custom outdoor and indoor ionizing systems, premium information on this subject, and consultation for small farms and greenhouses who wish to apply this to their operation.
