Plants also have language

  Language is a tool for human communication, and it is also a bridge for mutual exchange of emotions. Animals also have their own “language”, such as expressing their intentions through calls or limbs. So, does plants have a “language”? Many people think that plants can neither move nor speak. No matter what changes in the surrounding environment, they are indifferent. How can they have their own language?
  In the 1970s, an Australian scientist studied the response of plants to the climatic environment and found that plants make some strange sounds during periods of severe drought. Through further measurement and collection of data, he found that the source of the sound is in the water pipe in the plant, and the plant will vibrate slightly in the absence of water. Another Canadian scientist found that there is a correlation between the size of the noise made by plants when they are short of water and the degree of water shortage. The more severe the water shortage, the louder the noise. However, at that time there was no reasonable explanation for this phenomenon. If the plants deliberately make this sound because of lack of water, this conscious manifestation is amazing.
   As the research progresses further, scientists have discovered that the language of plants is very peculiar and charming, and the sounds they make often change with changes in the external environment. In order to uncover the mystery of plant sounds, British scientist Rod and Japanese scientist Kenzo Iwao invented a “plant active translator”. By connecting an amplifier and a synthesizer, the sounds of plants can be heard clearly. Using this translator, they found many interesting phenomena. For example, if some plants are in the dark for a long time, once they are irradiated by strong light, they will make a higher-pitched sound, as if people are frightened; when some plants encounter strong winds or lack of water, their sounds are low-pitched. It’s as if a person suffers a lot of pain; some plants will have a big difference in sound after undergoing changes in the growth environment, such as sudden comfortable sunlight shining on the body or sudden watering in a state of water shortage, the sound will change from harsh ears Become very pleasant, this is a way for them to express pleasure.
   Scientists have studied the sounds of different types of plants and found that the sounds of different species are also different. In order to explore the sound differences between plants, American scientists use instruments to measure the sound of plants. Two micro-electrodes are placed on different positions of the plant leaves. The function of the electrodes is to receive the signal from the plant, and then use a special instrument to convert this signal into sound, and then amplify it with an amplifier to form a complete test system. Through comparative tests, different kinds of plants will have their own unique sounds. For example, some of the voices in legumes are similar to whistles, and some are like crying; while the solanaceous plant tomatoes can make a loud and pleasant sound.
   The “language” of plants is essentially a response to changes in the external environment, just like the emotions of human emotions. Through this characteristic of plants, people can know the changes and needs of plants in the growth process, so as to carry out targeted care and effectively enhance their vitality.
