What Plants Talk About (Full Documentary)



When we think about plants, we don’t often associate a term like “behavior” with them, but experimental plant ecologist JC Cahill wants to change that. The University of Alberta professor maintains that plants do behave and lead anything but solitary and sedentary lives. What Plants Talk About teaches us all that plants are smarter and much more interactive than we thought!

    predator carnivores probably learned to like the plants emergency scent cause it could tell them where the herbivores might be feeding

    just a theory but i believe the brain of a plant is in the rhizome or the root system collectively. think of the neuro-pathways in a human brain and then picture the root system of a plant….. if you lay the pictures on top of each other, they're very similar. your brain sends signals all over your body as a response to something (environmental in the case), roots do the same…… its a basic theory but…. seems to make the most sense

    I've also just found a way to bypass the censorship program. It was simple.

    There. You may appreciate this irony. The boundaries between characters on this device are fluid, even when it's remoted.

    In the opinion of some, if you want me to leak, humans are much like the animal, with a floating rationale. And the Neanderthals were probably smarter and more capable of strategizing. So, what's the instinctual or culturally learned human strategy?

    Such lack of scientific method, so many jumped conclusions. I'm not negating the hypothesis, just the methodology, and thus 'conclusions'. Example: Inject a 'mother' tree with carbon14, then discover radioactivity in nearby seedings … Did they test the seeding's radioactivity prior, as a control? Nope… but they did conclude that "momma was intentionally nurturing the surrounding plant life". BAD science. This is why most folks consider these type of 'experts' to be silly and dismissable.

    Summary:
    1) Bad methodology
    2) Had a desired conclusion, and 'tested' for that result
    Score: D-

    Well I grow my vegetables at back yard. I noticed they protect their seed or fruit like Cucumber and Zucchini plant get help from grass to protect and if you grow where is no aid like rope or string . They are not happy and grow thin.

    My friend Hazel tells me plants stalk about leaf-ing the forest and branching out. The root of the problem stems from their love of writing poet-tree, some of witch-hazel tells me Is Oak-Kay. Gosh, I'm pine-ing for Hazel now. The dirty beech.

    I've got wood.

    vegans don't eat plants for that reason, at least I don't. anything that comes from animals is not good for you, it's not a sympathy thing. humans are designed to eat plants, not animals.

    I do know for a fact that plants wage chemical warfare in an aquarium.

    I've thought of those, 'Unwanted plants-weedsgrasses', tend to have chem. signal, thus being Able to Overpower the surrounding 'Wanted' (ones). maybe ~ this shows it May Be.

    I have noticed the same thing. There has been times where i have had plants in a garden, when it came time to remove a certain sex of a particular plant species " about 2months of age" the plant left to mature, droops and looks as if it is sick. After week or two it bounces back. I've been told its a stress hormone released by the doomed plant. yes i posted this before watching all of,this documentary, so no need to bitch at me.

    This was very interesting. I was blown away, that plants send out an s.o.s. for insects to help kill whatever bug is eating it. I really liked this documentary, I love to learn about earth's environment and how things work. Thanks for uploading this 🌿

    It's just a chemical reaction bro. chemicals don't have to "know" they just react.

    A few years ago i had a runer from a grass plant invade my bathroom. it came in thru the window. when winter came it died and I immediately felt like something was missing. When things die, i sometimes feel an "energetic" loss.

    Why does the botonist continue to say "we discovered…" or "something we haven't seen.." don't sell yourself short, Doctor. YOU discovered that shit. Patent your name on one those pharamones or behaviors. Isaac Newton would have. Edison would have.

    So, the one scientist who doesn't think plants communicate: his argument is that "if you talk to a layperson they'll think you're crazy. If you talk to a scientist they'll think your crazy and wrong."
    Wow, what a well reasoned argument. (Rolls eyes.)
