Did you catch the Garden, last year’s summer exhibition Monet’s Garden, and NYBG scientist Amy Litt this on CBS News Sunday Morning talking about flower power and the amazing science of plant “feelings”? No? Well that’s okay, because you can watch it now and learn all about how plants know that their neighbors are hurt, how flowers know when to open, and how venus flytraps know when to snap shut. But don’t worry vegetarians, you don’t have to worry about eating plants now, too. It turns out they can’t feel that much! ~AR
