Can Plants Hear?


Recent studies show that plants can “hear” when insects attack and have the ability to respond in self defense.


One study showed that when plants felt the vibrations of caterpillars chewing on their leaves, production of a hormone called jasmonate was triggered in the plant.


This hormone sends bitter-tasting chemicals throughout the leaves, deterring hungry little caterpillars.

Prof Edward (Ted) Farmer of the Universite de Lausanne in Switzerland was able to recreate the vibration, and in a separate study played this to their test plants. Not only did their findings support the initial study of plants producing this hormone in reaction to this sound, he also found that leaves which were further away would produce this bitter-tasting chemical, too!  


The more we learn about hormones, the more we see how influential they are in plant growth. Coconut water contains hormones like Auxin, Cytokinin and Gibberellins that work together to make foliage and shoots grow bigger in less time!
