Hmmmmm...looks interesting. It makes sense than a close by electric field could alter the development of a young organism in its early plastic states (at least epigenetically). This could be a way of inducing some variation without mutagenic chemicals in plants w/o crossable relatives. It should be pretty easy to test anyway. Anyone try out any crazy mad scientist electrobio effects?
Yea man I was getting a similar impression. The only real electrobiological effect that I have thought about is grounding to the earth's electricity. Turns out it may create EZ (exclusion zone) water throughout the body: www.youtube.com/watch?v=bvDoOlX9Fn0

I saw this in a serious german TV show when I was a child, they showed a fern and its transformed offspring. It was told that the offspring has the apperiance like a fern from the dinosaur age, to me it looked like a Asplenium scolopendrium, this, I found out when I was older... Since then I wonder what it is, real science or voodoo. there is not much information in the internet about it. I tend to judge it as voodoo, but if not...
