playing music for the shrooms?
    #909651 - 09/26/02 01:37 PM (14 years, 7 months ago)

I know this question has been asked at least a few times on the message board but I never found any real concrete answers.

If you guys went to middle school or high school, someone must have done that experiment where you have the same plants in the same conditions, and each plant if subjected to different genres of music. The plants that have the classical music of jazz music tends to grow better, while rap or rock seems to have no or detrimental affect on the plant. Has anyone tried different kinds of music, of do mushrooms even grow better with certain kinds of music?

Mine seem to enjoy a more uptempo song. But at night they like downtempo stuff so they can relax and chill with me as i smoke my weed  :grin:

Well since a mushroom is not a plant, it probably wouldn't respond the same way. But if anything I would think white noise, such as the trees rustling would be the best thing as it simulates nature.

myne have told me their preferences, in order: ELP, Zeppelin and Allman Brothers. In fact, I note a significant increase in growth speed when I go with their requests. For colonization, children's songs and cartoons.

Personally, my little buddies seem to like Beethoven.  It scares me somewhat, especially when I start thinking of A Clockwork Orange :ooo:

as i see the whole thing, shrooms are organisms of life of a different philosophy. so i feel that my shrooms have feelings and they grow better when the energy around them (around me who lives with them) is positive.

so, any music is okee, as long as the cultivator likes it :wink: lol

In an effort to provide you with a concrete answer:

In The Secret Life of Plants, Peter Tomkins and Christopher Bird discuss a number of studies (in India, Canada, and the U.S.) which document the effects of music and tone on plant growth and behavior.

Most notable is their discussion of Dr. T.C. Singh's studies in the early 50s. They appear empirically valid as they were conducted with control groups (ie plants grown under identical conditions that received no acoustical stimulation) and ahieved statistical significance (p < .05). Across a broad spectrum of species he was able to initiate flowering, expediate growth, and increase seeding, size and yield. This suggests that the phenomenon is more than a simplistic correlation, or coincidence.
More info on Singh's studies as well as many other experiments documented in The Secret Life of Plants can be found here.
Commercial applications of sound frequency to improve nutrient absorption have been developed as well.
There is even some evidence that suggests crop circles are at least partially, the result of (likely ultrasonic) sound wave exposure.

I was unable to find anything documenting the effects of music or tone on mycellial growth, fruit body size and frequency, colonization speed, spore number or anything else relating to mushrooms or other fungus. I've heard that in The Mozart Effect, there is a description of a study done describing the effect of Mozart on yeast growth (in petri dishes) which suggests that some research has been done.

I would be most interested in seeing whether or not certain acoustic stimuli affects the potency of mushroom fruit bodies. That is, will Ravi Shankar increase the concentrations of psilocybin in cubes?

It would be great to move beyond anecdotal evidence with regard to this question, so I encourage experimentation (especially if you have access to a uniform sterile controlled lab environment). Stick with traditional Indian ragas, baroque clasical music, possibly balinese music, or pure tones probably between 100 and 600 cycles per second.

I wouldn't be surprised if certain strains exhibited a preference for tones that mirror the vibrational resonance of their natural habitat. There is no reason why this couldn't have a significant positive effect on growth; although I would first work on perfecting all the other cultivation techniques to achieve sterility, intelligent work pace, strain purity, reliable growth parameters, and maximal biological effeciency/yield.

Hope this helps...

Well hre in PE we have a large button mushroom producer called Dennys.
I know the owner and he has gone to great lengths to put speakers all over his factory.
That way he always has different styles of productive music being played to his mushrooms at different times.
He'll witness to it deffinatelly work.

I'm glad those Michael Bolton and Kenny G cd's I burned for you are being put to good use. I'll be sending Engelbert Humperdinck next week.
