    Like talking to a dog is smarter?

    At least the dog knows your talking. The plants couldn’t care less.

    There’s nothing wrong with talking to one’s pet.

    Pet owners talk to their pets every day. Whether you have a dog, cat, snake, fish, iguana, you talk to it. Teaching commands, such as “get paper”, “get slippers”, “get beer”, has the added advantage of making one’s life easier.

    Many years ago growing up my mother would wrap her curlers in a scarf. She taught the family dog to go upstairs and get the curlers for her. One day I come home from school and she tells me, look what I taught Rusty to do. She tells the dog to get her curlers, and I was surprised and pleased when he ran upstairs, got the scarf with curlers, and brought them back down the stairs. That was a wet dog food day for sure. (for the dog).

    plants need to be talked to as well as the dog.

    Dogs and many other animals understand what we say. I suspect that plants do not understand anything.

    Had a teacher in H.S. who always said “I see, said the blind man to his deaf dog.”

    Me thinks that you would get the same reaction from your cat even though there is no doubt it heard you.

    It is not the talking to plants or dog that is dumb, it is expecting them to care
