Bully a Plant

What would happen if you bullied a plant for 30 days straight?

Plants have feelings, just like people, So, what happens when you feed one plant with compliments and another with negative remarks?

To raise awareness on Anti-Bullying Day on May 4, the retailer took two identical pot plants into a school in Dubai. It got the kids to record messages, both positive and negative, which were then played to the plants. The plants were, treated identically, kept in a controlled environment with the same exposure to water and sunlight. However, after a month, the “bullied” plant started to wither, while the other one flourished.
