    What the? Plant sensory?

    Okay, so, a guy took a lighter and electrodes and hooked them up to a plant (I have no idea what kind) and on a machine, the rest is very unclear, but it went something like this: the screen jumped up and down like a persons heart does when trying to be jolted back to life, and the plant wasn't moving.

    Maybe it's possible to communicate with plants... just like pets. Of course, you might not want to listen to me, for I'm in the nut house right now on the computer, and my hour is almost over.

    So what do you think about it?

    They did this on Mythbusters a while back. The plant did have responses to a few of the tests they conducted.

    They did one with pea plants where they talked to them and played music for the plants. They also did one where they hooked up a tree thing to an "electrical dohicky" and like slapped the plant. lol

    On mythbusters they attatched a lie detector to a plant to see if they could spook a reaction out of it. The only times they got any sort of result was when they physically struck the plants, so those results are useless right there. Later on they showed pretty definitively that there was no real reaction, IIRC.

    Wouldn't worry about it. lol

    That's right. Thanks for the correction. It was one of those times I was more interested in what the two hosts were doing rather than the minions. I think that was the episode where they were seeing if a taught wire could cut a person in half if it snapped.

    there was also a mythbusters episode where they tested plants' reaction to music. The results were awesome!
