Plants Have Feelings Too! A Look at 4 "Sentient" Plants

Green Lifestyle  (tags: environment, plants, nature, protection )

Who says plants don't have feelings? Mimosa pudica, also known as the touch-me-not or sensitive plant, remarkably demonstrates a plant's sentience. Many plants close up at night and open in the morning, but this plant dramatically drops its leaves

TU Cher. I read "The Secret Life of Plants" many years ago and have looked at plants differently ever since. My wife talks to her plants and plays them music...both inside and outside.

Talk to your plants and they will re-act.

My "lucky bamboo" looks pretty miserable. Maybe if I buy a lottery ticket and put it under the plant it will perk up?

If plants have 'feelings', I don't know, but I found an interesting situation when visiting our Pittsburgh Buhl Planetarium.
When it comes to cactuses or cacti, whichever you like, they certainly, have their preferences in liking or not liking certain humans.
The aura that surrounds people must be recognized by these plants.
Some will 'prick' you and some won't, and it isn't the same for every plant with every human.
It's quite amazing, actually.

NOted, thanks Cher, I wonder why humans think that we are the only living organisms to think, have emotions, and communicate? Species Ego's any human?
Indoctrinations perhaps?

Lloyd, why do you want empathetic, respectful people to starve? Are you familiar with Jainism? You can eat seeds, grains, fruits, etc. without killing the plant.

I talk to my plants and transmit loving thoughts around them. I swear they droop if I forget. A gentle word and they lift their heads again. Can't explain it but it does work. :)

If it's alive, it HAS FEELINGS.
That is the basis of all creation.
Even from childhood I always knew, instinctively, that plants have feelings. Some scientific studies have proven that, though most people are not informed.
My plants do so well, that I'm running out of space for them........I do love them..........
