There is an old wives tale that talking to plants helps them grow.

But not only is the suggestion proving true, apparently they don’t mind what you say to them either. A study has shown that saying nice or nasty things to plants will help them grow better.

But what is the point of talking to plants?

You can vent. You can gather your thoughts by talking to them if talking to yourself is too weird.

But plants don’t talk back. Or do they?

Recent developments in the understanding of trees indicates that they communicate to each other, displaying what some would say is intelligent life.

And while this is intriguing enough in itself, does that mean plants are not only hearing us but understanding us? And will the next step in their evolution be to communicate back?

I don’t know, but I bet you are looking a little differently at your plants now.

Let's Talk.
