When we think about plants and sound, many stories of people reading or playing music to their plants comes to mind, but how?

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.
