Plant Lovers....

I would like to try to "grow" a plant inside my mastering room. Is there a particular type of plant that grows with bass frequencies around 40 cycles... and 10-16k?

Plus the extra oxygen and "life" the would emit inside the room....

Good one. I'd like to grow "plants" in my control room also.

"I bought this tree to turn carbon dioxide into oxygen in my house. With all the dangers of global warming these days and everything you look at turning all our oxygen into carbon dioxide, I felt it was my duty to turn that around. Plus my fat ass brother in law uses up all the oxygen around here and I've been feeling the effects of it in the form of stress, hard breathing, asthma like symptoms, etc. After installing this tree in a vase with plenty of water, I'm guestimating that the oxygen level in here has gone up at least 3 percent. I'm feeling better already. I'd recommend this to anyone with low oxygen levels or a fat ass brother in law!

Was this review helpful to you?"

yes it was....Thanks

I have a similar situation about available oxygen... but mainly wanted to see what the plant would look like, act like, and what the "end result" will be....

And in the night when it produces carbon dioxide instead and consumpts oxygen do you drag it out of the room?

Interestingly enough, I made a record in 91' and the AE that I was working with, was doing this experiment with Plants. He treat them individually with different Frequencies, most of them out of the human range, and study their reaction...grow, decay, etc.
Never saw the guy again, but it sounded like an interesting Idea...

that would be interesting indeed....
oh how i would like to know more...

back to the windows...this of primary interest to me (if i gave a shit about noise)

i think there are about 15 huge windows in my studio/appt..
i'll be dammed if i'm going to shut out all that light...
as my plants (which i enjoy as much as my amps/mics) would hate that...and it's dark in milwaukee enough...

i was considerind making internal shutters composed of 1/1s and 703/705...to be deployed during loud banging...
i like the idea of lead or steel shutters that clamp down in the event of an emergancy..

SHUNK.....yes just like the batmobile...

also to be considered is clear plexiglass...like a control room window...chreate as dead an air space as possible....
i'm sure that thick glass/plexiglass would be waaayyy more than i want to spend on a rented space...

anyone?

not to sure about the control room, i think some would do fine, i think light would be the biggest issue.
i have well over a hundred plant's, many types, many orchid, ( i love them ) and i find most plant to be very adaptive

I have 2 windows in my control room and 1 in the vocal booth. They are glass block. It's ideal for letting light in, but keeping noise out. Add to that the security and there's your solution with a bonus. Also consider that if you have the sill depth, you can add a second course of the block, but leave out every other block, this varies the depth of the window surface - can you say diffusion thumbsup

a 75w metal halide and a 75w high pressure sodium light will give a corner of the room some serious full spectrum glow, and just about any type of plant will thrive underneath. assuming, of course, you know how to take care of plants.

otherwise, bamboo is the way to go. it needs virtually no light and grows in water. it's also beautiful.

i am curious, though, why "grow" is in quotes in the original post. should we be concerned that you're also trying to "mix" a record that you "recorded" using "microphones"? nudge nudge wink wink?

another benefit

I am certain that the diffusion characteristic of a rubber tree is almost perfect. You could pay a lot of money for a diffusor, and it won't give you oxygen. .

PLANTS THAT ADD VIBE

Any other specific recommendations for plants that will grow with little light?

I think a plant (in cool pot) will really add to the vibe of my studio.

That orchid pic looks awesome-- would that do well in low light (perhaps I could sit it outside every once in a while).

(The Asian style plants in Mike Shipley's room look cool.)

was just pointing out that I did want to see what effect the constant music would have and see how the plant reacts to certain things like bass, voices, instruments, and mixed music...

I am trying to find out which type of plant might work out best in a room with no windows and lots of music.... I don't have a problem with artificial light for the plant either...
