    That is a tough question. I would attempt to answer it, but while researching for it I found this site http://plato.stanford.edu/entries/consciousness/ and I thought I'd just link it so you can read it.

    According to a botanical expert I read about trees have the equivalent of a central nervous system and a heart. They, like us are mostly made up of water. All cells consist of empty space to the extent that all of the matter in all humans on earth would be the size of a coin if the space was taken away. This was in a science documentary.

    We aren't so different to any other species.

    I'm confident that they don't have consciousness as we know it, or nearly to the same extent that we do.

    I think its possible that a mouse has around 5 % of the consciousness we have. only a guess.

    Yes. I do feel that plants do have the same consciousness. I was told by a friend that plants have similar dna as human.

    I love planting and do 'talk' with my plants. It grows very well with me nurturing my plants daily.

    Plants are probably conscious of light, and rain and such, and they will probably react to sensing them... But intelligence? I would say not, I would call it instinct!
