If social media feels overwhelming these days, it’s nothing compared to the chatter going on beneath your feet. Pick up a handful of soil and you’ll be holding five times as many microbes—tiny, living organisms like bacteria—in the palm of your hand as there are people on Twitter. Like Twitter users, soil microbes have a lot to say about the world around them.
Microbes talk to each other by dropping small molecules like hormones into the soil around them. But they’re not the only ones listening. Plants living in soil can interpret these messages as signals to grow out their root system, germinate seeds, or grow their stalks faster.
