Flowers and plants that behave like animals are bizarre and awesome
Plants are capable of some astounding things, but it’s not always obvious what they’re doing. While most people see plants as food or building materials, or just that thing that makes your house look nice, they are living, respiring organisms. They have their own lives and they were here before us, but humans have mostly dismissed them as immobile, unfeeling parts of the landscape. Well, science says that’s not so. New research has shown plants are a lot more nuanced than they appear to be at first glance. So maybe you’ll rethink letting your plants die out of neglect, because they’re living creatures, too.
