Fiction on Plants: Plant Universe
Gaowei Zhou

One plant’s life can last thousands of years, growing slowly with the planet. Plants are very slow animals. They can compete for territory, find food, evade predators, and set up traps for prey. From a biological point of view, plants also have sight, hearing, and touch. The plant universe exists on another timeline, like a parallel line to the human world. It is a secret world that stays almost hidden from us.

Communication is the basis of living together. What is the language of plants? How can we recognize this? The language of plants responds to changes in the external environment, similar to human emotion. Humans can feel plants’ emotions by seeing the changes in plants’ colors and movements. It might still be far from building communication, but at least being heard or seen is the first step.
