Does Music Help Plants Grow?

Does Music Help Plants Grow? | Science Fair Projects | STEM Projects
Do plants prefer classical music? In this experiment, you'll find out if plants grow better when they listen to classical music or country music.


The hypothesis is that classical music will help the plants to grow.

Method & Materials

You will plant three seeds in each yogurt container, water them, and then place them in a spot by a window. You will also play classical music and country music for the plants for an hour each day.
You will need nine small plastic yogurt containers, twenty-seven bush bean seeds, potting soil, a measuring cup, and water.


The results showed that the control plants did the best, then the classical plants, and last of all the country plants. This led to the rejection of the hypothesis.

Why do this project?

This science project is interesting because it can help farmers produce crops faster.

Also Consider

Variations to consider include using different types of plants and different types of music.
