Coenosium

In this series, I re-imagine how plants interact with each other. If they could choose to connect on a conscious level, rather than on instinct. What would they yearn for? How would they relate to one another? What would that interaction look like? Instead of just growing towards the sun, could they gain sustenance by growing towards one another? Do personal connections fulfill an emotional need that all beings have? Or does it already exist and we just don't yet recognize it?
