Fun Fact Friday, Wk 3

Its Friday again ….happy dayz. See below our fun fact for this week.

Numerous studies have shown that playing music appears to have a beneficial effect on plants, promoting faster and healthier growth. Indian botanist conducted several experiments on music and plant growth. He found that certain plants grew 20 percent in height when exposed to music, with a considerably greater growth in biomass. 

To help you understand the effects of music on plant growth, it appears that it isn’t so much about the ‘’sounds’’ of the music, but more to do with the vibrations created by the sound waves. Basically the vibrations produce movement in the plant cells, which stimulates the plant to produce nutrients.

So get your records out and start playing – just a tip they seem to prefer classical music over against rock 🙂

 

That’s all for now – enjoy your weekend !!
