Phytovision – Live! is a live series of television for plants. Reversing the logic of EagleCams, Phytovision – Live! broadcasts the dramatic growth of a small cast into planthood. Plants across the land can tune in as a small cast of native onions and herbs emerge as seedlings into the sunlit studios at the ACRE TV station, growing into complex organisms sharing soil and sunspace, negotiating the trials of tearful pruning, and the tender moments and difficult decisions of flowering and fruiting. Broadcasts will be tailored specifically for plant perception.Scientific studies indicate that plants can sense light and shadow, and the colors red and blue.
