If you are a flower lover and gardener, you are sure to make sure that your plants receive the best possible care. But did you know that hanging out with them can help them grow? And this is not the only advantage.
The idea of talking to plants may seem strange to you, but experts say just the opposite. In fact, in a survey conducted by Trees.com, almost half of the 1,250 people surveyed said they had spoken to flowers before. More interestingly, two-thirds of these people said that interacting with plants helped them grow.
Horticulture expert Lena Cowley told Best Life that talking to plants is actually a good idea: "Plants are living organisms, and like all living things, they react to their environment." plants and music have a stimulating effect on their growth. One theory is that plants are sensitive to vibrations and talking around them creates a vibration that encourages them to grow. Another theory is that interacting with plants increases the levels of carbon dioxide around them, which promotes photosynthesis and growth.”
Theories of specialists are supported by research. For example, a 2009 study by the Royal Horticultural Society in the UK found that tomatoes grow faster when they "hear" women's voices.
Other research has focused on music. For example, a 2015 study published in the Journal of Integrative Science, Innovation and Technology demonstrated that music helps nails thrive, whether it was humming Indian songs or meditation songs. On the contrary, noise had a negative effect on plant growth.
Talking to plants reduces stress
Thus, communication with plants not only accelerates their growth, but is also good for your mental health. A lawn expert told Best Life, "Talking to plants can help reduce stress and improve mental health by providing a sense of calm and connection." It can also be a form of mindfulness to help people focus on the present and cultivate a sense of peace and well-being.”
