Can Plants Memorize Information? - Science and Technology 1

A plant changes its leaves color

No, plants do not have a “brain.” So, how do they memorize information? They have cells to have “a sophisticated calcium based networks” like memory in animals.

A report revealed when certain plant treated with drops of water:

- at first drop, plant will react by wincing its leaf

- after a while, plant learned to understand that water was harmless, thus plant does not react to other drops of water.

Another surprise, plant “memorized” this knowledge quite longer than expected, even compared to average animals:

- plant could memorize or hold new information for several weeks.

- insects have very short memory, could only from one to two days.

Since plants have no brain, their ability to store “expertise” in weeks, even two months is beyond amazing.


The plant with green and red leaves

Orchids have ability to trick insects, hence orchid called as a “clever” plant. They produce chemicals similar to female insects pheromones.

Pheromones is a wind borne chemical may affect on other insects behaviors. Chemical combinations or concentrations of Pheromones stimulate pollinators to do pollination.

In addition to Pheromones, many pollinators are attracted by orchid because of nectar and mimic foods, they include:

- bees

- wasps

- flies

- ants

- birds

- moths

- butterflies

Do you know or aware a kind of smart plants around you?

  2. Who knew plants were so smart? Then again, I'd hate to go up against a Venus flytrap. Gorgeous pic of the poinsettia. Happy holidays!

  3. I do know that plants that grow close together send underground signals that influence the growth of conspecifics. I thought it was an interesting blog, so thank you for posting.
