        This made me laugh at the thought, nothing personal Jorel, as I'm
sure it may actually work, it just presented a funny image in my mind.
60's flashback, which is bad, since I wasn't around then ;)!

        It may very well work, although it seems a bit troublesome to do
this as compared to just burning some twigs, or even a bit of newspaper,
although incense sticks do smoke a lot. If you try it, make sure to let
us know how it works!

Happy growing,
