What the Expert Says:

Your question is about 'electroculture', the study of the effects of electric fields on plants. A lot has already been done in this area of science. Check out the website below.

I know I'm a bit late to answer, but I'd like to add my 2 cents...

There are 2 main ways people experiment with the growth of plants and electricity:  either using static electricity (generated or natural), or DC (or AC).  In my experiments, I had great success using DC.  By just using a battery or phone charger with the leads going into the ground you may achieve some results.. Get in touch if you try anything out and I would love to help out!
