Well, under the right circumstances, yes. Plants can and do release chemicals into the atmosphere, some of which can be fairly toxic. How else would
an insect find the flowers, I guess color. But, you can smell flowers which shows the airborne traits of some of these chemicals.
If a plant was to pass a mutation on to the next generation that altered the production of a scent chemical onto a neurotoxin the plant could kill
some animals, even humans depending on strength and/or quantity.
Now, what if a mutation caused a plant to release a chemical that could throw hormones out of wack. This hormonal imbalance, if proper proportions
existed, could create negative thoughts even depression, which could lead to suicide.
It's almost definitely not going to happen but the possibility is there.
