FROM DR. HILDY:
Everything is music. While this may sound like a joke, it is known that our physical body has a vibrational frequency just like every living organism in nature. All of these living things like flowers, trees, and plants all have a cell structure and a specific vibrational frequency within the cell’s organism. While these frequencies may be inaudible to the human ear, we are susceptible to the frequencies of living things around us, and vice versa – even plants.
This week on One Cell, One Light Radio, Dr. Hildy will discuss what a plant knows. Inspired by the writings of Dr. Daniel Chamovitz in his book What A Plant Knows: A Field Guide to the Senses, Dr. Hildy will discuss his many years of research that found that the genes of light and dark in plants not only are conserved between plants and animals but also regulate responses to light in both!

Human beings are able to sense sound – which is essentially just changes in air pressure – through a particular form of mechano-reception by tactile-sensitive hair cells in our inner ears. But how does a plant hear? How does a Venus flytrap know when to snap shut? Can it feel an insect’s spindly legs? How do flowers know when it’s spring? Can they actually remember the weather? These are all questions addressed in Dr. Chamovitz’s book and topics of discussion on the show.
New research has revealed that plants not only respond to sound, but they also communicate to each other by making “clicking” sounds. Using powerful loudspeakers, researchers at the University of Western Australia were able to hear clicking sounds coming from the roots of corn saplings. Additionally, researchers at Bristol University also found that when they suspended the young roots in water and played a continuous noise at 220Hz, a similar frequency to the plant clicks, they found that the plants grew towards the source of the sound.
Join Dr. Hildy as she discusses the “hearing” of plants on One Cell, One Light Radio!

A FIELD GUIDE TO THE SENSES
Short Bio – Daniel Chamovitz
What a Plant Knows: A Field Guide to the Senses: Daniel Chamovitz: 9780374288730: Amazon.com: Books
Here’s a fascinating postscript from Israeli botanist Daniel Chamovitz, whose book, What a Plant Knows: A Field Guide to the Senses, has a vivid section on flower farming and light flashing. He points out that you can’t trigger a blossom with any light. Mostly, farmers used red light. Blue lights, green lights, other colored lights, don’t work. He writes:
[In] the early 1950’s, Harry Borthwick and his colleagues in the U.S. Department of Agriculture … made the amazing discovery that far-red light — light that has wavelengths that are a bit longer than bright red and is most often seen, just barely, at dusk — could cancel the effect of the red light on plants.
Let me spell this out more clearly: if you take irises, which mostly don’t flower in long nights, and give them a shot of red light in the middle of the night, they’ll make flowers as bright and as beautiful as any iris in a nature preserve.
But if you shine a far-red light on them right after the pulse of red, it’s as if they never saw the red light to begin with. They won’t flower. If you then shine red light on them after the far-red, they will. Hit them again with far-red light, and they won’t. And so on.
We’re also not talking about lots of light; a few seconds of either color is enough.
It’s like a light-activated switch. The red light turns on flowering; the far-red light turns it off. If you flip the switch back and forth fast enough, nothing happens.
On a more philosophical level, we can say that the plant remembers the last color it saw.
Chamovitz is, of course, speaking metaphorically. Plants don’t “remember” the way humans do, but still, in their botanical way, they detect light, know one color from another, “remember” how long a light or a darkness lasts which, I guess is a form of time keeping, primitive counting — and they do all this without a brain. Plus, they’re gorgeous.
