    Only Zonker could do this.

    ‘But you have to play classical music, none of that rap stuff.’
    (Don’t know if that study was ever refuted: ie plants grow better to classical music than rock. I like both, actually, and don’t even mind rap.)

    Amazing to see Zonker show any business sense at all, but here it is

    This is getting creepy. Only two days ago Q4horse said “Zonker had better start sweet-talking his plants”. Is everybody else here really a GT sockpuppet? Wasn’t I supposed to get a choice between the blue pill and the red pill…?

    This is simply picking up on a thread from years ago when Zonker would talk to his plants. And they would shudder every time Mike had to watch over them.

    @Kim Metzger

    The joy of a story that’s been going on for more than 40 years. When was the last time we saw Zonker talking to his plants? And them talking back? Like most events in my life, I remember it happening, just not when.

    See, I told you he would have to start sweet talking with his plants.

    Ironic that Zonker is asking others to grow up and become productive fast.

    Zonker hasn’t really talked to the plants since the old days at Walden, with Patty, the potted palm, and Rob, the daffodil that wanted to be a tree.

    I remember hearing about plant talking when I was in H.S. in the 80s. It is supposed to have a positive effect on house plants. Someone even did an experiment for the science fair that showed plants that were talked to and some, in a similar situation, that were not, and a positive influence (they were bigger and healthier looking) was shown. I have no idea if it was the words, though, or the hot air…
