Almost all babies have ears and a nervous system while virtually no plants have either.

Backster. Interesting spelling of the name. "Baxter" used to mean a female baker. It's an occupational name.

I don't know.

I currently and usually talk to my plants, and cuddle some trees I made from seed, and that was a remembrance of my grandfather Roberto.
You can easily make a polygraph measuring resistance of plant leaf's surface. Record this resistance in a file, build a curve from saved data, and check how it correlates with your attempts to communicate with plants.

And yes, I agree that presence of articles that try to discredit some work does not man that the work had been discredited forever. That only means that the work drew attention of that people who tried to discredit it, no more.

Ok, yes its true, but as i unknow the meaning of the curves, as did Backster, then I surely can't understand what the curve is trying to say to me. This is the same case as you have a VOM with a resistor burned in it. You can measure in the power supply, say, 12V, but if you don't understand that in this line must be 220V, then if you plug a 12V lamp it will explode. This is for me, the same example.

Yesterday, chatting with a friend say to me "Karlson speakers has resonances, and the tweeter must not be mounted coaxially as K suggested". But do any other designed something better than the K coupler to have the authority needed to criticize the K job? I don't know such a job, and I respect the Karlson work and put the tweeter coaxially.

It is for me so unfair to criticize the work of any man, if no thing better than that has be done.

Sorry if my english isn't too good.

If you locate the music speaker at the nearest window to the plant you will find the plant growing towards the sound. Zowie!

It is said that it depends on volume and kind (type) of music. I read somewhere that classic music make plant to close to the speaker, and rock music to move away from it.

But it has been. I even gave you the references. Might be worthwhile to read them.

Surely. As soon as I can I'll read them, thanks.

In this moment I'm trying that a rare SMPS starts.

Not that it holds any real scientific value.

But didn't they do a test on this on Mythbusters a few years back? With peas? They had some small compact cd systems they put different cd's in on repeat, in different greenhouses. The music did influence the plants, though I do not remember the result.

Edit:
About scientific research: I rarely interpret any results from any scientific investigation as fact! The results change pending on who is funding the research, and who/what the research staff is/stand for! Most things can be proved/disproved just by changing approach or order of testing, slight changes in climate or surroundings can greatly influence almost any result. A good example is t/s parameters.

Edit2:
Pano: Indeed interesting about the name, we say "Bakst" for making bread, cakes or stuff like that. "Julebakst" making cookies and pastry for christmas.
