    Abstract:
    The paper describes a replication experiment on affecting biological rhythms of the plant dracaena with 37 attempts during 2 days. The initial experiment was conducted by the Akimov's group in 1986 under the supervision of the KGB of the USSR and published in 2001. As indicated by official documents, that project was considered to be the prototype of spin-based signal-transmission system in the context of early quantum communication. The replication experiment was positive in 32 periodical attempts by measuring the bioelectric reaction of plants. From historical point of view, this work analyses a possible biological orientation of initial experiments and some potential conclusions that were not mentioned in the open press of that time. The disturbance of biological rhythms based on the effect of weakly coupled oscillators and possible neurological manifestations, as in the incidents in Moscow in 1991, in Cuba in 2017 and other 'Havana Syndrome' incidents, are discussed.
