The Moon’s Phases and the Plant Life Cycle
The moon’s phases are also related to plant life, and may even provide a kind of calendar for plants to determine which parts of the plant life cycle are about to occur. Phases of the moon appear to follow a predictable pattern, which seems to be different from each lunar phase. Therefore, it would seem to be likely that an advanced understanding of the moon’s cycles can be used by plants to help them learn the cycles of their own growth. Now that we know about this phenomenon, perhaps plants should be given more credit for helping mankind understand the overall nature of the universe.
Plants can also determine when to bloom, or whether to grow. Growth cycles in plants include the month when the plant flower opens, the time during which flowers begin to die off, and the time at which flowers fade. Thus, if plants knew about the phases of the moon, they might predict the time that certain plants would open, or how long their seasons would last.
Studies have shown that plants are more sensitive to their environment than we usually think. The moon’s phases provide another way that plants may be able to influence the success of certain types of food crops. Since the moon’s phase-cycle changes with different seasons, some studies have shown that plants may be able to determine the time of year to plant certain crops, based on the phases of the moon.
Plants may be able to predict when to flower, since the seasons change. This may be done by knowing the frequency of the moon’s phase. These studies are still in the early stages, and many other factors must be considered, including the seasons.
When the moon is not as bright as it is during nightfall, it is also possible that plants will not be able to see the same amount of light during the day. However, some plants will be able to detect the times when the phases of the moon are about to change. This means that plants might be able to tell when to begin growing again.
A similar concept can be used to predict the phases of the moon. If we were able to measure the frequency of the phases of the moon, we could determine when plants would be able to begin growing again. It seems likely that this would take some practice, as many plants do not respond very well to periods of darkness, and thus have difficulty sensing when the phases of the moon are changing. As soon as the phases of the moon became visible, however, the plant should begin growing again.
Research indicates that plants sense the time of day when the phases of the moon are about to change. Plants like to grow during the daylight hours, but are more interested in seeing the phases of the moon than the actual time of day. Plants’ eyesight is designed to determine the phases of the moon, not the exact time of day.
Studies have shown that if plants were given the time of day when the phases of the moon would change, they would be able to learn when it was likely to be dark enough for them to bloom. They would be able to study what the phases of the moon tell them about the environment and the seasons. Some plants might learn how to increase their productivity during the early hours of the season, and they might adjust their growing patterns accordingly.
This is similar to how humans adjust their schedules, in that plants learn which days are favorable and which are not. Even plants are hardwired to anticipate the change in their environment. The light patterns may already be present in the soil, and therefore it may be possible to artificially signal the plants to begin growing.
Though it is unlikely that plants will be able to accomplish this, there is another study that suggests they might be able to control the appearance of the sun during the early morning hours. In fact, in some studies, plants seemed to make this adjustment unconsciously. There is a reason why some plants become more colorful during certain periods of the day.
The infrared effect of the sunlight has been studied, and it seems to be responsible for the colors that some plants produce. During the night, the sun emits high-energy rays that have been shown to be essential for the production of green chlorophyll in plants. The infrared rays produced by the moon are not absorbed by chlorophyll, and thus they are absorbed by neighboring plants, which also absorb infrared radiation from the sun.
It is possible that plants can determine when the sun is going to be too high to grow, since the phases of the moon change to signal to the plants when it is safe to begin growing again.
