For better or worse, here is the present state of things:


The leaves still haven't opened up.  My brother suggests more sun.

This is getting pretty dang rad if you ask me.

Of course, now we'll need a medicinal marijuana pedal.

I feel that such a creation should look as much like this as possible:

On the topic of rolling capacitor crazy, I've made capacitors out of aluminum flashing and an engineering textbook somewhat recently (a single page of the textbook was my dielectric).  Started to venture into making a capacitor out of a mylar birthday balloon, but got distracted by other projects (like this one).  ;D

Bucket of salt water, glass cocacola bottles inside, salt water in them. Wire to the bucket-water, wire to the inside-bottles-water.

I had it attached to a jacob's ladder setup (15kV.) Didn't notice any difference :(

In college, I saw a homemade Tesla coil with a cap made from a Champagne bottle filled with oil, wrapped in foil, with a giant nail in the top.

Signs of hope this morning.  I've been leaving a light on overnight.

A couple more pics from today.  There are a few areas that look less lively, but overall, I am still cautiously hopeful that this will be successful.
