Plants are amazing. From cleaning our air to fighting against disease (and being delicious to eat) they are a necessary part of every environment. But did you know that they also respond to sound? They do! And, as if that wasn’t cool enough, they also produce their own sound.
Seems the animal kingdom isn’t the only one that has something to say!
While they might not create sounds like humans and animals, they do use “vibration and sound around them to communicate and to inform them about any imminent danger from nearby.”1
Don’t believe me? With a microphone and mobile phone, the woman in the video below records the vibration sound emitting from the sunflowers. The sound it beautiful and haunting.
Enjoy. Happy Monday! XO- Erin
But don’t just take our word for it, this was confirmed by a study done by The University of Western Australia where researchers “discovered clicking sounds coming from the roots of corn saplings.”2
