do plants like music



  1. 0 Votes

    There have been several studies done on the relationship between plant growth and music, with a 1973 study done by Dorothy Retallack being among the most famous.  Her results did, in fact, show that plants grew in different ways and with varying degrees of health depending on the presence and genre of music being played in the growing chamber.  However, it’s very important to retain a healthy level of scientific skepticism.  I don’t know how well she managed to control other variables besides the music itself or whether her sample size was large enough to be representative, two factors that can have huge impacts on the results of a study.  

    In short: literature that suggests musical “preference” in plants does exist, but it’s likely that this information may not be reliable.
