Listen Up: Hannah Henderson’s Playlist for Plants


We’ve often heard that music can help plants grow. And while this is an untested theory in our apartments, it’s been working for Hannah Henderson, one of the owners of the impeccably curated Los Angeles boutique General Store. The shop is full of plants—towering in light-filled corners or trailing down walls—that are as eye-catching as the wares. Though not all the greenery is for sale, Hannah did send us off with a plant-friendly playlist that she claims has a successful track record.

1. “Who Loves the Sun,” The Velvet Underground

2. “Little Yellow Spider,” Devendra Banhart

3. “Vis a Vis,” Allah-Las

4. “Debra,” Beck

5. “You and Me,” Penny & The Quarters

6. “Hey Hey What Can I Do,” Led Zeppelin
