Before the next time you feel like saying someone is as smart as a potted plant, you might want to watch this MinuteEarth video.

Wow, this is really an eye-opener. I have to admit that before this, I have always thought that plants, whether in storage pots or not, are just dull and plain simple living organisms that do not do much except absorb sunlight. However, after watching this educational video, I realized that that is all untrue and plants do react and behave like any other living organisms too which have brains. Their responsiveness towards other plants that they thrive on or are reacting with is just amazing and actually quite moving too emotionally. Yes, I will not refer to anyone ‘as smart as a potted plant’ now unless they are REALLY smart in that sense.
