A minor point: there is NO evidence that plants respond to music or being
spoken too. There is lots of psuedo-science claiming such but no scientist
has proven this. 

But, plants do respond to external signals: light (intensity, wavelength,
direction), temperature (both hot and cold), gravity, touch, volatile
compounds from other plants,etc.
