I'm not aware that there have been definitive studies
done on this topic.You hear all sorts of "anecdotal"
evidence, but I haven't heard of any experiments done in a
controlled, scientific manner. The way I figure it, if the
person tending to the plants likes the music, he/she is likely
to spend a little extra time, and give the plants a little extra
care. If the music is offensive to that person, he/she may
rush through the watering/fertilizing, and other chores, to
escape the noise. I can't think of any other way that plants
could be affected by different types of music. If you know
of any conclusive studies, please let me know!
