part of borrowed scenery experiments in plant communication


  • setup & testing of equipment
  • potential amplifier for magnetic coils → (c r a x c.x. xx nk .x)
  • microscopy
  • watered plants
  • earthboot device → kokedama test

project notes MH:

  • bioluminscent communication vector: dark goggles with mycelium contained, some way of amplifying photon events
  • earth/plant/fungi resistance, impedance or potential measurement: differential amp(ad620,ca3140), ad5933 with usb, bridge and transistor. electrodes/plant connection? (we also have 1x geophys earth measure device and one generic diff amp(test with plants))

mention in one paper of thin silver wire attached with a glue of honey/potassium chloride mix. also nik mentioned action potential measurement techniques.

  • plant consciousness interface (coil/amp of which measured signals?)

“Two differential amplifiers (AD620 measuring plant microvoltage fluctuations) - where on the plant? Also with GND reference a la EEG, further amplified by IRF640 driving coils placed experimentally on occipital lobes. [An alternative would entail microvoltages driving (adjustable) VCO before coils.]”

simplest magnetic coil amp for interface tested (arriving at 1k series resistor with 15v supply giving around 10-20 milligauss at 3cm distance in parallel) will probably use 9v battery but remains approx same region…

potential sources for amplification: earthboot (but then we have computer), differential amp (ad620-TODO or ca3140), resistance bridge with transistor), also VCO of any…

  • sonification (analogue VCO (741) or simple software)


  • some notes on action potential measurement (see Plant Perception)
  • construction of dual coil amplifier and headband (anticipating testing with 2 low frequency signals generated by software
