I had this weird idea of making plants grow faster when I first visited an indoor nursery which used floodlights instead of sunlight. They turned on during the day and went off during night in cycles.
If the time period of the cycles are decreased, it would seem to the plants that the earth just switched to fast-motion. Will this trick the plants into growing faster?
If not the current generation, would the later generations of plants grown like this adapt to the new rhythm ?
(Given that the plant is provided with surplus nutrients to meet the new requirements.)
I would love to do the experiment myself if it would actually work!
