Now that I have completed the green family (I finally have an aloe vera, another couple of Pothos, and even some lettuce that was given to me), I'm concentrating on keeping all the plants healthy an happy. Why not? They certainly have improved my mental state.

I have always heard that music is beneficial to plants, but I never thought about what kinds of music might be best. This is an article talking about that. According to it, my plants like music that I also can enjoy, even if I don't listen to it all the time. Classical music, soothing music seems to be the key.

I found it so funny what was said about the negative effects of some rock music. I happen to think that a lot of rock music has the same effects on the human brain!

For the past few weeks, I have alternated playing violin music and different nature sounds for the plants So far, they seem to like it. The music, along with the plants, also alleviates my depression and anxiety.
By the way, when I got this Monstera back at the end of April, I thought it was a wonderful plant. Look at the difference some music and loving care has made:

So, yay for music.
