    Interesting documentary about how plants live, grow, and behave.


    Especially towards each other. Some neighborly, some paracitic. Also, proved that trees nurture their children (Avatar Movie mother tree?).


    I fell asleep early on, and finished it next day.


    Made me ponder how aquatic plants behave. Refer to the segment comparing root growth of siblings separated by water to those grown in soil. Things that make you go, Hmmm.

    Watched the documentary on NetFlix last night, I'm a little scared to trim my plants now. More happening in the plant world than I ever would have thought. Thanks for the recommendation.

    I will add that I have watched this one a while back, and it was mind boggling to see a mother tree nourish a sapling via the radioactive carbon analysis, as well as how far the radioactive carbon actually traveled with the help of the fungus infrastructure.

    Does this mean as plants of different species will try and out compete each other in a planted tank, even more care should be observed for plant species in a single tank for optimal growth? We already do this with husbandry and keeping fish and invertebrates without a second thought.
