Understanding the difference between “spreading” and “stemming” in plant growth patterns, is a doorway to the deeper mysteries of how hormones affect plant growth.
This pattern is used to describe a whole system of plant sprays that can be made from natural substances to influence plant growth from root to seed.
Includes *recipes* and experimental results!Read More
Using the alchemical language of sulf, sal, mercury, Dennis describes how certain minerals and hormones that govern plant growth can be seen as growth patterns of deposition and dissolution.
Understanding of these patterns can be used to select what elements to include in a plant spray.Read More
In the growth of medicinal and culinary plants the balance between two fundamental hormonal influences is a valuable key to enhancing both medicinal properties as well as aromatics and flavour in culinary plants. Most plants are apically dominant. That means that the terminal buds on each branch determine the branching and shooting form of the…Read More
Recent research on the relationship between climate change and plant growth has revealed an unusual paradox. It seems that the more CO2 a plant has available in the atmosphere the larger it grows. However this growth is accompanied by a ubiquitous 8% reduction in potassium, calcium, iron, zinc, and plant protein in the cells of…Read More
[Republished from the Journal of Anthroposophical Medicine Vol.9 1992] From a mechanical point of view the motion of the earth as it revolves around its axis brings into being the diverse set of phenomena known as the sunrise. From a more poetic point of view the sunrise is a rune of high significance for human…Read More
[Republished from Journal of Anthroposophical Medicine (JAM) Vol.10 1993] If one were to approach a professional scientist and challenge the hypothetical method as a flawed premise for good science, one would surely be met with vigorous protest. And, indeed, the protest would be well founded, because the hypothetical method is a well-proven cornerstone of scientific…Read More
To truly see the Earth as a living being with a soul capable of will impulses and feelings requires humans to come into contact with the way that phenomena in nature stimulate feelings and will impulses in human beings. The sequence here is sense experience creating a picture image in the nerves that leads to…Read More
Dennis teaches us about the most important plant rhythm, solar length of day, and how that can be used in planning your planting calendar.Read More
In this series by Dennis Klocek, he outlines a different way to look at health science through the temperaments. Part 1: Phase Theory and Element Theory In the first video, he compares the similarities between the contemporary phase theory of matter (solid, liquid, gas, warmth) and and the older element theory (earth, water, air, fire).…Read More
