Plants can not only hear you, they can feel you, smell you, and remember things! In this DNews video, Trace shows us how plants know what they know.
"Sound Garden: Can Plants Actually Talk and Hear?"
"The forest really does hum with life. Though often too low or too high for human ears to detect, insects and animals signal each other with vibrations."
"Plants can hear you (and they're getting sick of your shit)"
"In Roald Dahl's Big Friendly Giant, the BFG describes his ability to listen to plant's voices with his enormous ears. "
"Plants may be able to 'hear' others"
"THEY can "smell" chemicals and respond to light, but can plants hear sounds? It seems chilli seeds can sense neighbouring plants even if those neighbours are sealed in a box, suggesting plants have a hitherto-unrecognised sense."
DNews is a show about the science of everyday life. We post two new videos every day of the week.
