Default Plants, audio and humans

Several years ago, mother gift me a small book about a man who was studying about plants perception, and he discovered casually that plants would feel some human acts.

Few time ago, I found the pdf of the original job by Cleve Backster:

http://www.rebprotocol.net/clevebaxt...ife%2023pp.pdf

This book was a condensed version of it job.

I believe he is true, and although plant's possibly can't listen, perhaps they have some audio perception, and some other more. In fact, I ussually talk to my plants, the problem will be when I believe they ask to me!.

What do you think?

I think it is enough to care about animals. Life would be unbearable if I had to care about plants too. So, are plants also sensible to my mistreatment? Oh God, what have I done to deserve this.

I've seen experiments suggesting that plants have some sort of perception.

My wife talks to plants, and they are happy and cute, before not survived nor plastic plants.

Backster's "work" was thoroughly discredited decades ago. I'm amazed that stuff like this still pops up. Maybe N-Rays will make a comeback?

Almost always some guy does something strange, is criticized, I read the work entirely, and although I can't repeat his experiment (I had no poligraph and I don't know how to use it), I had done certain simple observations that appear that he is true. In this article (Or work as SY call it), he made a casual observation, and then, a more scientific one, where he could check his first views. Then, it is said that he didn't use "scientific method". I don't know.

I currently and usually talk to my plants, and cuddle some trees I made from seed, and that was a remembrance of my grandfather Roberto.

I saw this in the news

A farmer plays music in his field and his farm production has improved.

I don't be surprised if it is true.

Babies can listen to music so why not plants?

I believe that Cleve Bacster (I read his article log time ago), says that some plants try to move their leaf in direction of sound with certain kinds of music, and to move away with other. So, I can deduce that in some instances they can "enjoy" this music and hate the other??? Who knows...
