To me this sounds like the best idea as well. Soak a bunch of seeds in
a solution of caffein for a few days and plant them.
My other idea was to run an electric current from a battery either
through the seed or through the seedling as it grows. Whether an
electric jolt is able to cause error in DNA replication during cell
division... I know not. However, it sounds far safer to work with than
that horror colchicine.
