‘plants are not just able to live; they are able to sense.’–stefano mancuso
MY GARDEN MENTOR’S NAME is Marco Stufano, and so when, in a Google search for something botanical, I happened on a result that said “Stefano Mancuso,” I just had to click. Had they jumbled my Marco’s name? No; it yielded a 2010 TED Talk by an Italian plant scientist, and though not the answer to what I had been seeking, it perfectly summed up how I (and Marco) feel about plants. You must watch (be sure to first click “30 languages” on the bottom of the frame, and choose English subtitles, so you don’t miss a word).
