Does Music Help Plants Grow?:  Does Music Help Plants Grow? Multimedia Science Fair Project DeAnna Donohue EDU 530 11/17/07 Question: :  Question: Will plants grow better with classical, country or heavy metal rock music? Hypothesis::  Hypothesis: Experiments have been done in the past to see what effect music has on plant growth. Does music help or hinder a plant’s growth? Does it matter what kind of music is played? In this experiment, I will use classical, country western and heavy metal rock music to test plant growth. Materials:  Materials Four potted plants of the same type 3 CD players or 3 radios A Classical CD A Country Western CD A Heavy Metal CD Pencil Paper Ruler or measuring tape Watering can Procedure:  Procedure Put each plant in a separate room by a window. Place a music player beside 3 of the plants. The fourth plant is a control plant that will not listen to music. Make sure that each plant cannot hear the other plant’s music. Play the music 24 hours a day for 2 weeks. (You, your family, and your pets may need to wear earplugs for these two weeks to prevent nervous breakdowns.) Give each plant the same amount of water daily. At the same time each day, record the growth of each plant with a measuring tape and note it’s general condition. Results for Control Plant:  Results for Control Plant Results for Classical Plant:  Results for Classical Plant after Results for Country Western Plant:  Results for Country Western Plant Results for Heavy Metal Plant:  Results for Heavy Metal Plant Analysis of Data:  Analysis of Data Summary and Conclusion:  Summary and Conclusion At the end of two weeks, the control plant had not changed, the classical plant had grown considerably, the country western plant developed bowed legs, and the heavy metal rock plant was dead. This gives evidence that music does affect plant growth and leads one to wonder how music may affect the human brain. Similar studies have been done to show that classical music helps babies’ brains to develop. It has also been found that classical music can help one to concentrate. Since this researcher listens to country music on the clock radio every morning, it is tempting to conclude that it’s adverse effects may also be damaging her mind gradually as the years go by.
