Perhaps unconciously choosing the better plant to fawn over?
Do this: take a number of plants, have someone else maintain them
all identically. Before any of the plants start, choose the location of
the one you intend to nurture by thought or words, then stay with
that one. Dont physically touch the plant in any way, or even breath
directly upon it. Do your plant-praising after the plant maintainer has left.
Make sure the plant maintainer does not know which plant is getting
the encouragement. Get a third person to evaluate the plants at a
preselected time, a person who knows not the experiment. Record
the results, even if it goes against the theory. Get a thousand others
to do likewise. Would you still bet on the outcome? spike
