The Plant Knows

Plants know things. I know this because I study them.

I want to know What a Plant Knows.

I have read a book by that name written by Daniel Chamovitz.

I also took the Coursera class from Tel Aviv University by that name.


Plants know where they are and the seasons and what they are close to.

I am trying to learn from them. They are teaching me.


This Epiphyllum Orchid cactus never bloomed.

I researched its native habitat.


In Brazil it hangs from the trees.

So I hung it from a tree.



It knows.


Now it blooms every June.

Humans don’t know everything, but we can learn things

even from plants.

Especially from plants… and animals.

They are the ancients.
