Contingent modalities is a beauty though. Works well with plausible deniability. Great weasel words for a news conference when the incriminating photos have hit the Web.


Even sober, I'm laughing at that! May have to work it into my next plant class somehow...

It sounds like you're looking for a phrase that's the equivalent of "Old Wives' Tale", but I have no idea what it would be, either.

So how about something like "Nature's Calendar", or "the Natural Calendar"?

Or coin something new, like "Eco-planting"?

Old farmer jargon (almanac) would probably call that the "telltale" sowing signs.

Comically, the rule of (green) thumb, to be specific to your request.

Beyond that, it becomes too esoteric.

Okay, 'phenology' seems to be the word, a new one to me. When I first saw it in Scafool's post, I thought he meant phrenology (which seemed awfully unlikely) and had to look at it more carefully.

I knew you could come up with some useful words. (Still looking some of them up... "ante-current generational cosmi-agrarian event-synchrononized vectored seed planting wisdom literature"... that one is going to take me few minutes!

Okay, thanks All!

Allelopathy is very similar to what you are talking about, maybe you can start with that word and work outward. As in "allelpathy, not to be confused with (the word you need), is when plants actively determine the germination of other plants".

What you are referring to is a sort of human-based allelopathy.
