Join Mythbusters at The Explosive Exhibition in the Denver Museum of Nature & Science to put the theory to the test. On the Talk to a Plant site you can tweet to have your words read out loud to the plant. Go ahead and wish the plant well, you just might help it grow!
Here’s how the study works. A control plant similar to the plant being tweeted at sits in silence. The museum will compare the height, color and leaf size of both plants over the course of the study, from October 11 to January 5.
So what have we said to the plant so far?
