Dominant plants? Really?

please-also-have-lives

Years ago, one of my houseplants killed another plant. At first, I thought it was my fault because I should have been more attentive, like a proper indoor gardener. Then a few months later, now vigilant, I caught a philodendron about to attack another plant.

So I did some research and learned that plants are vicious and murderous to each other. When it comes to animals, they’re coldly manipulative. They abuse and kill insects and small animals, and they really do consider us service animals. Think about apples and Washington State. Apple trees have taken the place over, with us pleased to be doing their bidding.

Vicious, murderous, and manipulative – on Earth. What would happen on a different planet with a little more time to evolve?

I still have houseplants, by the way, but I don’t trust them.
