In Star Trek TOS Episode The Menagerie, we see on a visit to Talos IV, singing plants. This was produced in 1966.

On reading John Astor's A Journey in Other Worlds, we also read of singing plants on another planet. This was published in 1894.

My question is: Are the musical plants in Star Trek TOS's the Cage a reference to A Journey To Other Worlds?
