As it turns out, plants chat among themselves. They communicate through fine mist of airborne compounds.
A study revealed that plants are surrounded by a fine mist of airborne compounds that they use to communicate and protect themselves.
Pretty amazing, no?

Oh gosh, now I have to worry what my plants are thinking while I am pruning them back.

If you're a reader, you might like Finding the Mother Tree by Suzanne Simard. She's also on TED with a talk called "How trees talk to each other."

Sounds like the Broadway show "Little Shop of Horrors," about plants.

It's well known that plants communicate via air borne, volatile chemicals as in the OP, but also thru the soil via roots, fungal interactions, etc...A plant may manufacture and secrete a chemical that is noxious to an attacking insect. That chemical is sensed by neighboring plants, and they will also start to secrete more of the same chemical to discourage invasion by the noxious insect, for instance....or a plant that is located in a local area of drought may receive water via interacting roots from it's more fortunate neighbors. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plant_communication

As the OP article states, changes in Ca flux is a common method of intracellular communication in many biological systems....The amazing thing in the video is the technology that allows us to visualize the process- it occurs exactly as the mathematicians predicted.
