Examples of Sounds, 125-250hz, for Boosting Plant Growth


Edited: Sep 26, 2018

According to Chef B's book The Medical Marijuana Growers Guide (section Agro Sonics), plants have been shown to grow faster, by as much as 100%, when exposed to sounds between 125-250hz. Thought I'd list some sounds that are around this range: Woodpecker pecking wood- 150-500 hz

Thunderstorm- 20-120hz, averaging 100 hz

Rain- probably anywhere between 100-300 hz Birds chirping- can be high pitch, 5000 hz +

Classical music- apparently around 432 Hz More sounds! (added 9/25)*: The "oo" in "who"- low frequency

The "s" in "sun"- high frequency Male voice- 80-150 Hz Female voice- 165-255 Hz From these numbers added on 9/25, the best thing you can do for plants' growth in terms of agro sonics is to have both men and women talking around em! Sound also has decibel ranges (loudness or quietness) along with its pitch measured in Hertz as shown above. It'd be neat to see research on how decibels also play a role in plant growth and what the upper and lower limits would be for that. I got these numbers from random research online. As one website said, "people who are new to thinking of sound in terms of frequencies think low frequencies are actually lower than they are and high frequencies are higher than they are." I hope this helps people new to thinking of sound in terms of frequencies and perhaps considering testing agro sonics in their grow! Quote from:

i wonder if breathing out carbon monoxide helps to :) haha

Absolutely! Not only is it necessary, but it's known as the second limiting factor to plants' growth (with sunlight being the first and soil being the third). Adding CO2 boosts your plants growth a lot. As a matter of fact, until CO2 needs are met, plants can only pull a certain amount of minerals from the soil. Add all the organic CO2 you can! Mechanized tank-released CO2 can poison plants, but you cannot harm plants by breathing near them/placing mushrooms or animals near them to increase CO2 levels, and it will greatly boost yields.

  • I created a social site that focuses on marijuana... Pot Swap Club, were people are able to trade marijuana and more. I created it last year, however I had some health problems and other issues and had to put the site on hold, but now i'm back in action. I just added forums and could use knowledgeable people , if interested, please watch the short video and visit the site... To our success in life "What we tell ourselves, our brain believes"
  • Hi all. This is a message to Chef's family who I assume might have control over this website now. Please inform everyone of the status of the website. I would appreciate being able to come back and post, but perhaps it is time to share my research with another knowledge data base. I currently have my research saved from this website but would recommend everyone save any posts that are of particular interest to them as well in case the site is suddenly shut down.
  • Hi all. Below is a recipe for a homemade organic pro-mix taken from SF Gate. I know Chef has passed but I think this is still an excellent forum to gather on and spread research with. I do think someone should comment on if this web page will exist for long though as well just in case so this valuable research is not deleted! I have back ups just in case but I'll make a seperate post for that. Onto the pro-mix recipe: 1/3 peat moss 1/3 perlite 1/3 organic gardening soil 1/4 cup garden lime per gallon of mix I have tried it and it works. Be careful if you have hard water, you will need to add intermediate chelators (AKA L-Amino Acids) to chelate the calcium, magnesium, etc in your water to prevent transpiration issues etc general salt issues that occur with mixing hard water and this fairly sweet and calcium and magnesium rich soil mix. I recommend going easy on the dolomite lime in general and also go easy on the peat moss, peaty soil is known to compact. If you are gonna be moving plants in pots add more perlite than peat moss because this will help with transpiration issues that come from compaction when moving potted plants around. You'll notice how good this mix smells and works for plants! You'll get very fast growing plants because this mix is focused on high porosity for a very high rate of transpiration and therefore plant mass production! Also note that this mix only feeds plants for a couple weeks and then you will need to add some salts for the plant and soil health. Adding a bit of organic matter to the soil eventually will be a good idea as well to continue feeding your organic base in the soil. I personally have a food web with springtails being consumed by a certain antonymous fungi in my soil I try to keep going. The springtails don't leave the pot and the fungi and springtails provide a ton of nitrogen to the plant, potentially CO2 as well! This cycle has successfully infected all the pots in my house interestingly. Sources: SF Gate Guide for peat moss pH balancing: Peat moss to perlite ratio (Also SF Gate): SF Gate's article on the disadvantages of soil-less media (similar to this growing medium (pro-mix) minus the organic gardening soil): SF Gate article on composition of potting soil (good place to start to understand potting soils which are often replaced by soil-less pro-mixes). Also ratios of stuff: On the springtail and fungi note, that is harder to source. The certain springtail eating and red hued mushroom producing fungi comes from Host Defence's Myco-Blend all purpose microbial and biostimulant inoculant and I think the springtails followed me via transporting the same compost over a long period of time. On the transpiration topic: Dr. B.C. Wolverton's book "How to Grow Fresh Air" explains that there is an equation that dictates how much air a plant is filtering dependent upon how much mass the plant produces. This has a lot to do w/ the soil medium. High porosity soil makes for the fastest mass production in plants. PS. If you have your own high porosity pro-mix or something similar please post it here. Of particular interest are environmentally friendly mixes, which the above mentioned mix is not due to the unsustainable peat moss component. Coco coir can be used to replace it (and is more environmentally friendly) but then potassium salts should be added at some point although I am less experienced with that mix so I don't know how soon potassium would be essential. I imagine co co coir may cause issues w/ pH because it may not be super acidic and so dolomite lime may need to be adjusted to lesser quantity per gallon. Also this mix may have too much calcium and magnesium due to coco coir and dolomite lime having so much of these elements. Maybe it'd be fine though. A good pH, texture, and an organic base, and magical things can happen with any soil mix basically.
