This is why we keep the grass near the tower trimmed. It's also why we don't like to see ANY vegetation near our towers. Whether held by silly humans or still with roots in the ground.

Best parts of this video, IMHO, is when these clowns get the RF burn. Wonder how much power? (My apologies to any actual clowns in the audience.)

If they were getting burned by just holding a plant, there obviously is enough RF energy at that close range for sterilization. Problem solved!!

I'll admit that I've done this once or twelve times.
