  • Pesticides kill things. This is the truth. But not all pesticides kill bugs, or plants, or fungus. Using accurate language matters when we’re talking about things we don’t fully understand. Pesticides, Herbicides, Insecticides, Fungicides, how do they relate to each other?

  • I film plants growing for fun.  While I realize that’s a scathing indictment of how I spend my free time, it gives me the opportunity to see just how much plants move when you look at them long enough, and I think that’s cool!
    One thing I didn’t have enough time to explain is HOW a plant is actually moving. I mean, it’s cool they move, it’s cool we can film it, it’s cool we know WHY they are moving around, but how do they do it?
    Auxins.  Auxins are a kind of plant hormone that is key to all of this movement. Auxins can be translocated (moved around) across the plant’s stem and roots and the rest of its tissue. Auxins cause the plant cells to grow, so the plant can control its direction based on where in its tissue it’s putting the Auxin.
    Now you know how plants move! Cool hey?!
