    Unhappy

    Hi guys!

    I've read in a few places that one shouldn't put plants next to electrnic devices, such as tvs. But what is it about them that can harm the plants? Is it about the waves they emit?

    Got curious again...
    Thanks!

    I have never heard that, but I am witness to the fact that magnets put in the soil a certain way can make marigolds take off. I want to try it with my cp's, but I need to track down the kid who did the experiment so I can get the data.

    Growing plants to close to the TV can be very detrimental. This is predominantly caused by the plants inability to move away from the TV on its own. This tends to cause severe cases of plant lethargy. I have seen documented studies proving without a doubt that carnivorous plants grown to close to television sets mature into specimens with un-naturally violent tendencies toward non-carnivorous species.

    This is very scary stuff, a real snapshot of the problems we are having with our youth. I shudder to think about what may happen when we start to introduce genetically engineered plants to television overexposure.

    This stuff gives me the night sweats.

    LOL! I don't let my cps watch TV until all their homework is done.

    The TV lets of LOADS of heat while it is on, and this is not good for plants.

    And I tottaly agree with Steve.

    All I got to say is uh ohhhhh. Maybe the aluminum foil around the terrarium will block the waves....or...maybe it'll attract it. x_x
