Usually, when we think of other species and how they communicate, we think about animals. That is one of the reasons why we consider animals extremely intelligent.

For example, we know dogs communicate through their barking. Science has even found how dolphins communicate in the deep sea.

But plants should also be considered intelligent. They also have a way of communicating between each other. This nature documentary explores that.

Plants have a way of attracting insects, and their mechanisms to do that are just astonishing. Think about this for a second, Amazonian Indians believe that plants talk to us. Funghi, for example, are the architects of all life, as they are dictating the environment.

With that in mind, take a look at all of the ways plants communicate between each other, with insects, and with us.
