Caressing plants can make them healthier

2013 09 16 Touching Plant

Even plants need their egos stroked occasionally. Thankfully their egos, like ours, are distributed all over their whole bodies.

Actually, it’s more that plants respond by growing hardier in response to the repeated stress of being touched. In a way, also like us. One person’s terrorizing mosh pit is another person’s stress release dance.

Thanks to the Journal of Plant Signaling and Behaviour for the heads-up.
