How Music Affects Flowers

There are many advices written and said about how you are supposed to take care of your flowers if you want them to grow and bloom healthy and beautiful. Most of these advices are already quite familiar to anyone who has ever wanted to have flowers in their homes. You should regularly water them, place them in the right spot depending on whether or not the flower requires more or less sun light, use fertiliser at least twice a year spray the leaves with water, etc. However, there is one not very popular but proven theory that many flower specialists support. It is the theory that the energy of the sound is also extremely useful for your flowers.

Specialists have performed a number of researches to come up with the final conclusion that talking to your flowers will actually help them grow and bloom much faster. It has also been proven that music has a positive effect on flowers health and condition. However, those who do not agree with this theory support their opinion with the simple fact that those people who are keen on music are as a rule more responsible and hence they deal with growing flowers and taking care of pets more responsibly compared to others.

1. First theories
In the beginning of the 20th century Indian scientist Sir Jagadish Chandra Bose is the first to announce the theory of music and how it influences flowers. He spent years in researches to find the particular way flowers react to a number of external factors one of which is the music. He even invented an extremely sensitive facility with the help of which he proved that music woke electrical impulses in flowers.

2. Agri – Wave technology
A new generation of technology, called agri-wave supports Bose’s theory. This technology is focused on measuring sound characteristics of flowers and is very similar to the Chinese acupuncture. According to this theory if you combine flowers nutrition with sound waves on a particular frequency your flowers will grow faster.

3. Experiments
A number of experiments have been performed in order to determine the exact effect music has over flowers. In the year 1960 an American farmer George E. Smith tried this theory on corn and soy germs. He planted them in two different hothouses with one and the same levels of air humidity and soil. In the first hothouse he played music and started to observe the changes. He even played with the sound level. After 3 years of observations Smith found out that the “music” plants grew much faster and much healthier. He also found out that the higher the sound volume the richer the harvest.

In 1973 Dorothy Retallack checked the theory in another aspect. She played two different styles of music on flowers – romantic, slow songs to some of the flowers and rock and roll to others. The result was that energetic songs had fatal effect on the flowers – they started to fade and died in the end.

In 2006 a wine cellar in Tuscany, Italy decided to test the music theory by placing loudspeakers in one corner of the cellar and playing music on them. Results showed that those vines that were closer to the loudspeakers grew better that the others.
