Attire to be Worn when Social Networking with Plants

IMG_1398

An elegant black dress in which the intricate white patterning is alive and will link its wearer into the soil mycorrhizosphere.  The latter is  a vast network made by symbiotic root  fungi which promotes plant growth  through which plants have recently been shown to communicate forming  a type of information network amongst plants. This is a first experiment. An equal quantity of seeds was added to the two tubes but only one contains mycorrhizal fungi. The results are striking. All done with items available at any garden centre so a little DIY Bio experiment too!
