Plants want to live TOO!

In the name of Allah, compassionate & merciful بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ
Peace be with you السلام عليكم

I just read the NYT article "Sorry, Vegans: Brussels Sprouts Like to Live, Too" and I am amazed at how complex plants are. SUBHANAALLAH!

The more that scientists learn about the complexity of plants — their keen sensitivity to the environment, the speed with which they react to changes in the environment, and the extraordinary number of tricks that plants will rally to fight off attackers and solicit help from afar — the more impressed researchers become, and the less easily we can dismiss plants as so much fiberfill backdrop, passive sunlight collectors on which deer, antelope and vegans can conveniently graze. It’s time for a green revolution, a reseeding of our stubborn animal minds.
I completely have new respect for plants and the green revolution. PLEASE read it and share your thoughts because I am interested in hearing your take on it.

Subhanallh plants are really amazing. When I was in biology class we watched a time lapse video and really it seemed like the plants were alive because they would turn towards the light and things like that. Thanks for sharing :)
