GardenDrumWhat do your plants think?

Do plants think, feel and communicate?  Increasingly the experts are saying that yes, they do in their own special way.

Renowned author and lifelong gardener, Michael Pollan, uses time lapse photography to gain an insight into plant behaviour.  By speeding up time we can see plants are much more active than we think, sensing and competing for space in their surroundings.

Plant thinking, or neurobiology, is a topic GardenDrum’s covered before, and this video is a neat demonstration of the way plants sense and react to their environment.  It’s been suggested that plants have a form of awareness called non-conscious intentionality that, while not quite on the same level as human consciousness, is a form of consciousness nonetheless.
