ST. LOUIS, MO. (KTVI) -- Want your tomato plants to grow faster? Try getting a woman to talk to them.
According to a new study, women's voices speed up the growth of tomato plants much more than men's voices.
In a month-long experiment, researchers found that tomato plants grew up to two inches taller if they were read to by a female rather than a male.
In fact, some plants actually grew less when read to by a man, than if they were left completely alone.
