There is a simpler explaination!!!!!!!!!  Fusion requires HUGH amounts of

Making chemical bonds requires only a SMALL amount of energy.  How about
if the sprouts fix CO2 from the air and make sugar with it.  Their weight
will go up and no new elements will be created.

Why invent "transmutations" when common chemistry will do?
