    I am just over 3 weeks in to my first grow and have been playing various music to the plant. So far I have played Nucleus Roots, The Orb, Nine Inch Nails, Beastie Boys and Ott to name a few and my plant is looking very healthy. I am playing anything with a load of bass or energy behind it as this music tends to get people going on the dance floors so why not make a plant pick up too? Time will tell I guess.

    I usually play some really cool West Coast Jazz from the 1950s for my plants. The high from the smoke is really swinging and groovy.

    I switched over to some of Beethoven's lighter classical stuff, like his Moonlight Sonata and found the high to be more mellow and laid back. I imagined that I was walking beside a beautiful river in Vienna.

    After that crop was finished, I started playing Dark Side of The Moon for the new plants ... the smoke was trippy and I heard weird things like hearts thumping and cash registers chinging.

    Then I tried playing Rap, Heavy Metal and Death for my plants ... and the smoke was like really, really, really bad Mexican Schwag.

    I seriously think every plant is a Metal Head.

    It's just a myth I think. I know they did that on Mythbusters... just can't remember what the results ended up being, lol.

    its simply rediculous and retarded in every way shape or form to think that sound affects a plant

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MythBusters_(2004_season)#Talking_to_Plants Talking to Plants even small greenhouses were set up on the M5 Industries roof. Four were set up with stereos playing endlessly looping recordings (as having the MythBusters actually talk to the plants could contaminate the samples with their expelled carbon dioxide): Two of negative speech, two of positive speech (Kari and Scottie each made one positive and one negative inducing soundtrack), a fifth with classical music and a sixth with intense death metal music. A seventh greenhouse, used as a control sample, had no stereo. The greenhouses with the recordings of speech grew better than the control, regardless of whether such talk was kind or angry. The plants in the greenhouse with the recording of classical music grew better, while the plants in the greenhouse with the recording of intense death metal grew best of all despite somewhat dying, due to the fact that the battery died on one of the timers that was watering the plants.

    they did do it on mythbusters.. the plants that got death metal grew the best.

    scientifically it is proven that plants react to tones in the 100- 250 khz range but they dont like it loud. classical music will stimulate growth but barely enough to notice

    I just started playing Hindu chant music by Ravi Shankar, I'm excited to see if it makes any difference.
