Probably not. Or at least not by normal levels of sound.

If you put a frail plant in front of a high power base speaker and buffet the plant around until its leaves fall off, then it will be "affected by sound". But in general, plants probably are not affected much by sound.

Or, as Little Ed once said, "Well, some people say plants will thrive if they hear dentist's office music, but they'll die if they hear rock 'n' roll. Which to me says that plants may have feelings, but they don't have any taste." Smile
