"This is a set of chemical processes that are a result of evolutionary stimuli. In no way is this "Plants thinking". This guy's videos are usually really good but he missed the ball on this one."

and you consider this to not be "thinking" because why? Because it is not how animal life on this planet thinks? You have a very narrow concept of what defines intelligence and thinking.

Well done video, but the title was "Can plants think?" Which is definitely a "no." They can respond, interact and adapt, but that isn't thinking. Plants can even send electrical signals through the soil to influence growth of other plants. But this is all just evolution doing what it does, and to think plants would need consciousness.
