The Wisconsin Fast Plants manuals I have seen suggest
that insects on fast plants can be controled by bagging the entire
plant and pot with a burning cigarette. That prompts me to think
a simple experiment with fast plants could be conducted. Has
anyone out there tried experiments to test the impact of the
tobacco smoke/tars/nicotene on fast plant growth etc, rather
than insect pests of fast plants?
I may try it myself if the students are interested.
