Let me get this straight, the title is not a metaphor or any fancy-looking sentence. It is a true sentence. Definitely, it does not carry any hidden message, seriously. Plants do write blogs. Confused? Read on.

By pure physical means? No. They send signals to the cells to produce hormones and enzymes, just like how we send nerve impulses to the cells in our bodies. Remember, plants are indeed living things, they are not lifeless!
As a matter of fact, Japanese scientists have been researching on how to communicate with plants. (Of course, they do not talk to plants but they do try to understand their bio-electric signals.)
|Midori-san and its blog.|
The bio-electric signals sent within the plant were interpreted by a sensor and converted into data and then, translated into Japanese words. They named the plant, Midori-san which meant "sweetheart plants" because of their heart-shaped leaves.
NOTE: This is not fiction. Read here, and here too.
