Not so much the ground, but I did kill half of my wife's fichus ..... quite 
a neat job really ;-)

Re-tuned the system and got much better than expected output and the poor 
plant was within striking distance.  All of the foliage on one side 
turned-up its toes and fell to the ground.  Interestingly the other side of 
the plant was fine and survives to this day!
