It might sound CRAZY but – – can music help our planet? Let me explain … there are studies out there that show music promotes plant growth!
Some plants have been known to grow an extra 20% when played music compared to plants that didn’t have the joyous tones of music.
But what music I hear you ask…? Well, funnily enough plants that were played rock music didn’t thrive in that environment, they actually died within a few weeks – so sorry Korn, looks like you won’t be saving the planet anytime soon!
But instead, plants that had the relaxing tones of classical music thrived in that environment – promoting the aforementioned 20% extra growth in plants.
So I go back to my original question, imagine if music could cure our planet… Unfortunately it’s not likely that it will, but it would be amazing if it was that simple. It really does show the impact music has upon living things, and the greater positive impact it has upon them. (Even if they don’t appreciate a heavy drum beat and ground breaking guitar solo).
