To really thrive and be beautiful, plants need the right type of soil, light and water… but they also require our attention. Like all living beings, plants react when you talk to them: They grow more, bud more, flourish more and recover better.
But talking to your plants is not only good for them: It’s also good for us. Have you ever noticed how relaxing it is to take care of plants — watering them, cleaning their leaves?
Talking to them gently, telling them about your day, surrounding them with love and positive thoughts, or simply telling them how grateful we are for what they bring us … It’s all part of the same virtuous circle.
Plants are known to react to sound variations, it’s only natural that they should like the melody of our voice and the positive energy that we send out. And it’s a two-way street: Who doesn’t enjoy a room full of the life and vitality that plants bring?
Prince Charles himself once said, "I just come and talk to the plants, really. It’s very important to talk to them, they respond." And taking the time to serenade your green friends also means that you’re more likely to better look after them, picking off dead leaves you wouldn’t have noticed otherwise.
So keep talking to your plants: They will grow more beautiful than ever —and so will you: It’s the double miracle of whispering to plants.
