I love plants I feel they are particularly underrated in many aspects and in their own way although different to ours they are intelligent and conscious.



Neuroscientist Greg Gage performed an experiment showing plants can count and “think” during a TED Talk published this month. This is just one piece in a larger puzzle starting to show that plants could have a form of consciousness.

Venus flytraps can count how many times flies land on them.

In 2015, German forester Peter Wohlleben wrote “The Hidden Life of Trees,” astonishing the world with how trees communicate with each other.

A tree won’t treat all other trees equally. It chooses its friends.

Other scientists have suggested plants are very ‘mentally’ capable.

I think plants do far more than that. I think them to be teachers for us in the mordern world. To talk about that would fall outside the realms of ATS terms and condtions.

They are important in other ways they really can help heal the planet if we give them a chance and assist. They heal people and provide us with life long friends and relationships.

Here are a couple of interesting threads on similar subjects

Agreed. Plants are sentient and have feelings...Chandra Bose 1st proved this in the early 1900s.

I moved from West Texas to Central Texas over the summer. WHere i come from the abundant trees are mesquite, which look more like underbrush until they've grown for 100 years. Gorgeous trees, especially when it rains. But trees in West Texas are undervalued in general.

Here in Central Texas trees are revered. Where I work we have an 800 year old box elder. There is a 700 year old native pecan right in front of my office. The indians bent it over to mark a cave/well that are next to my office. You can see tree roots coming through the top of the cave and dipping into the water.

The wal mart built its parking lot around a 500 year old live oak.

People here revere trees. To drive home the roads leading into my neighborhood have the black top laid down on either side of hundreds year old oak trees.

I really enjoy it quite a bit.

Are u a native Texan?
Mesquite trees are the worst....ever been to a farm??

There’s a reason we use mesquite to burn our barbeque...
Because it grows like a weed and can ruin your land in less than a year...so we burn every one we see...
I friggin hate mesquite bushes...

Born and raised here.

Mesquite are terrible for bare feet. The needles tear you up.

Once they get 75-100 years old they are quite pretty. And they make the best smoking wood.

Incredible. The more we begin to understand, the more we will realise plants are incredible things! IMHO they are sentient beings with a timeless ever evolving and adaptible intelligence.

I love the fact that plants all help each other. As do the fungi. Amazing stuff.. S&F
