Plant Brains

I knew about the sensitive cell clusters on plant roots.  In fact, I just wrote a poem about them.  But it didn't occur to me that this is actually the plant's brain.  In essence, they have their brains in their fingertips.  Fascinating.  Perhaps they are touch-dominant, especially plants that emphasize their roots, such as carrots.
