Top Ten Reasons Why Plants Could Take Over the World

Okay, so plants probably won't be taking over the world anytime soon. But perhaps this list might make the idea seem slightly less crazy.
The Top Ten
1 They're Everywhere

I believe plants are taking over the world and am trying to find solutions to our problem.

That's actually a good thing. The more plants we have, the more we can fight climate change.

2 They Reproduce Like Crazy

This can become rather bothersome if you're trying to grow a garden, but things get out of hand. (I speak from personal experience. )

3 They Can Survive Through Almost Anything

There was once a chicken farm among my room and garden I am very concious of our time on this planet with the weeds growing out of the chickens buttocks shows how they can survive through almost everything, on this instance they would undergoe many tests that you would not believe they would survive.

Some weeds spend several years underground before surfacing. A meteor could hit the Earth and turn everything to dust. Five years later, hello little weed!

Barney matthews' dog got eaten by a plant that survived through lucozade overdose.

4 Masters of Defense

Some are poisonous and some close in on themselves with even the slightest touch. If one type of tree is set on fire, it's sap produces smoke which can blind people almost instantly.

I have played plants vs zombies and it shows how powerful the plants side are on defense as many feel that it is very difficult, with the new addition of the new operators in r6 the sunflower gun is shown as the best gun on the game and with them now being eligable of competing at the pro level it shows the mastery of th plants.

5 Some Can Live for an Extremely Long Time

Then…DUN DUN DUHH! We will have world dictatorship by plants, and the dictator's name would be Aloe Hibiscus or whatever.

6 A Lot of Species Depend On Them
7 Some Are Carnivorous

And we're not just talking insects. Some have even begun to devour birds and mice.

8 Some Are Slowly Learning How to Walk

Well, this is a bit of a stretch. A plant called Neomarica (aka the Walking Iris) has a long stem that grows flowers. In the midst of these flowers grows new flower stalks that are disguised as leaves. As the original stem of the flower continues to grow, the new flower stalks weigh it down. When the new flower stalks touch the ground, they grow new roots into the ground, making it seem as if the plant took a step.

Well we can call it semi-mobility, but this by no means is full locomotion. If plants do learn to walk, then heterotrophic beings will lose their significance all together.

9 Some Have Learned to Resurrect Themselves

A plant called the Resurrection Fern can 'play dead' during a drought. As soon as it's got access to water, it springs back to life!

10 Survive On Only Sunlight and Water

It should be noticed that though plants do survive on sunlight and water, the thing that works against their survival options is their immobility.
Though if we are talking about creatures like Euglena and autotrophic microbes then that's a different case.

Many plants can go an extremely long time without water too.

The Contenders
11 They Have Many Ways to Harm Us

Tobacco:I'll give the smokers lung cancer!
Deadly Nightshade:I'll kill the children!
Kudzu:I'll destroy their property!
Habanero:I'll pack a fiery punch for them!
Acacia:My pet ants will eat them alive!
Castor Bean:I'll kill the humans with a poisoned umbrella!

Lots of plants are poisonous. So they can poison you, or sometimes vines could choke you to death of suffocate you, other plants scratch you to death... there are so many different ways for plants to kill us and take over the world. Sometimes, bushes grow around people and then they grow thorns, they wait and wait until they have grown enough and then stab or scratch you to death (or both) and then use your corps as fertilizer! HELP US BUSHES ARE SAVAGE CREATURES THAT ARE TAKING OVER THE WORLD!

12 They Are Immune to Radiation

Plants rely on radiation for photosynthesis. It's just that some forms of radiation can cause cell damage and mutations in both animals and plants.

Pripyat is full of plants. Even when there was high levels of Raidiation. So when a nuclear war happens... Well you know.
