Aftereffect Of Music On Plant Growth

Rock, pop, classical, country or heavy metal? Which one of these should your plants be exposed to, or should they be exposed to any at all? Music causes drastic changes in plants. Plants enjoy music, and they have longer life spans when exposed to the appropriate style. Music containing hardcore vibrations could be devastating to plants. There is a right and a wrong way to play music to plants. For example, the volume should be taken into consideration. So should the type of music played. Certain types of music can wreck havoc on plants. Other types of music can make your plants thrive.


Heavy metal music should never be played around a plant. It can have devastating effects. Even played at a low volume, heavy metal music can be very damaging to a sensitive plant. Plants are not fond of pop music. Plants subjected to rock music become stunted. If they are continually exposed to rock music for more than 10 days, they will eventually die.

Country music is well-favored by plants. In recent experiments that have been conducted, country music has beat out classical music by a slight margin. Classical music has a gentle vibration, and it's easy on plants. It is relaxing and has no hard beat. They will practically dance to it. The foliage will point upwards as if it is looking up to the heavens.

Violin music significantly increases plant growth. Overall, the best options for a plant are country, classical and violin music.


A good idea is to make a tape of yourself talking softly with low-volume, classical music playing in the background. This will cause the plant cells to be stimulated and enhance the growth. It can also make foliage more green. It is ideal to use this method once or twice a week.

Consider a little mix-it-up. Use a bit of variety. Play classical for a few hours one day. Play country music for a few hours the next day, and then your self-made tape a few hours on another day.


In a town called Montalcino in Italy, Carlo Cignozzi owns a 24-acre Tuscan Winery called Paradiso di Frassina. It is here that he grows Sangiovese vines which are responsible for the grapes that are the exclusive ingredient in Tuscany's Chiantis. Cignozzi discovered that plants have more vitality when exposed to certain kinds of music. Maybe that's why the famous Chiantis has such a unique taste. It just may be the soothing music that Carlo Cignozzi plays. Cignozzi proves that the gentle sounds of classical music can make plants grow vigorously.

Lyrical or Non-lyrical

Classical music is favored most by plants. Keeping that in mind, non-lyrical music would be categorized "top notch." On the other hand, lyrics without music can be compared to gardeners talking to plants; that has been known to encourage plant growth. Therefore, combining lyrics with certain types of music would be in the same category as classical music.

Both lyrical and non-lyrical songs are equal. There is an exception. Lyrics containing profanity will do more harm than good. Non-lyrical classical music comes in first place, and tagging right behind is a tie between violin and soft lyrical country music competing for second place.


Always keep the volume of the music down. Never play loud, obnoxious music to a plant. The plant lean away from the path of the music. If loud music is continuously being played, the plant will eventually die.

Make sure that you play the music in intervals. Don't play music continuously all day long. Play the music for 4 to 5 hours, then stop the music for 4 to 5 hours. If you don't have the time to rotate, simply play the music for a couple of hours per day. Never play it continuously.
