Plant consciousness & Biocommunication

Research is being conducted to understand Plant consciousness & Biocommunication. Research still is in progress, but some suggest - Plants may not have feelings but they are indeed alive and have been described as sentient life forms that have “tropic” and “nastic” responses to stimuli.  Plants can sense water, light, and gravity — they can even defend themselves and send signals to other plants to warn that danger is here, or near. ...
