I do not think that there are any proof for the statement that magnets affect plant growth. There are many hypotheses that suggest increased growth of plants under the influence of strong magnets but I do not think that there are solid proof for these statements. Actually I have also done some experiments with strong magnets and plants. Those were fullerene rare earth magnets that I ordered from www.klikyballs.com/ These are very strong magnets, but even under the influence of these magnets, I was unable to note any remarkable changes in the growth of the plants...

While scientists believe that plant roots grow toward gravity and most stems grow toward light, there is speculation that strong magnetic fields have an even stronger effect, causing them to "pick up the pace," so to speak, in their growth rate.

Despite the fact that experiments with magnets and plant growth has been popular amongst the science fair contingency, the truth is that the study of magnetic fields on plant growth is still in its infancy.

No concrete conclusions have been drawn based on hypothesis and experimental results that put us any closer to knowing definitively why magnetic fields have an impact on plant growth.

Because magnets are irons, iron is a mineral, and the soil has minerals so the magnets help the soil become powerful!
