Plant Stimulation Through Sound

When we think about plants and sound, many stories of people reading or playing music to their plants comes to mind, but how?  Well, as it turns out like a great number of other species on this planet, plants developed a defense mechanism allowing them to pick up subtle vibrations through their leaves to let them know when predators are nearby.  Though they don’t use traditional auditory functionality, If you look at the shape of most they will have a broader section that reaches a point, much like cats ears.

Plants have shown time and time again, that for the best results they require a bit of stimulation to break the monotony of their day, or as many vintners will tell you provides character.  So if you happen to find yourself with some extra time today, be sure to read to a plant, and it may just thank you someday.
