Whether Unkind Words/Kind Words Affect Plants?
by Nguyen Hoang Minh Khue and Vu Minh
Abstract – Talking to plants has effect on plants’ growth, but does the way we talk matter with the plants? A research was carried out in one month with some pairs of plants by Spring Hill Academy students with the teachers’ supports, where they whispered selected words to respective selected pots of plant and it turned out that the way we talk to plants really has effect on their development. It could be either positive (the plant grows more strongly and flowering sooner) when kind words are whispered to a plant or it could be negative (the plant grows slowly with less buds and late or even no flowering happens) when unkind words are used.
