    The Simplicity of Genius

    It is one thing to read about leading edge technology, and quite another
    to have the opportunity to employ these outpourings of genius yourself.

    Light Emitting Computer's Plant Whisperer® is definitely cutting edge;
    it's value is based upon the fact that different light wavelengths have specific effects on plant growth and development, and that narrow-
    bandwidth light-emitting diode (LED) lighting may be used to
    directionally manipulate size, color and metabolites in high-value
    plants. <1>

    To put it simply, different light frequencies encourage different
    responses from plants. Or, as Jefferson Airplane's Grace Slick put it,
    "One pill makes you larger, and one pill makes you small, and the ones
    that mother gives you, don't do anything at all." <2>

    Me? I feel like I'm in a 1977 California garage, watching Steve Wozniak
    design the first Apple computer.


    I was introduced to The Plant Whisperer® when I mentioned my efforts to germinate and grow Kaffir Limes in my Vancouver Island home to an old
    friend. (Click to read about it here, so I won't have to repeat myself.)

    I was contacted by the inventor, Light Emitting Computer's Jeffery
    Bucove, who offered to lend me one of his magic lanterns, and asked if I
    was interested in borrowing one for three or four months and using it to
    grow my limes.

    A few weeks later, Jeffery brought a Mark V unit to my home and installed
    it in my office. The results were amazing, to say the least.

    Here's a video Jeffery created in 2012 which explains the concept behind
    Plant Whispering...the background noise level is caused by four cooling
    fans (Each Mk V unit includes a massive heat sink and fan designed to
    keep the electronics components cool).

    ... take it away, Mr. Bucove...

    The Leading Cause of Poverty Are Progressives - Help Raise the Poor:
    Promote Capitalism

    "Never underestimate the willingness of white progressives to be offended
    on behalf of people who aren’t and to impose their will on those who
    didn’t ask for it." (Derek Hunter)

    "Liberals never argue with one another over substance; their only dispute
    is how to prevent the public from figuring out what they really
    believe." (Ann Coulter)
