Phytl Signs is our version of the common English expression “vital signs” but applied to plants.
Just like humans, plants provide signs indicating their health and vitality. We aim to provide tools to help observe and understand plant vitality because, after all, we rely on plants for food, medicine, fibre and fuel. Understanding plants better will help us live more healthily and sustainably.
Vivent is enthusiastic about collaborating with other individuals and organizations active in plant electro-physiology.
