Just as Moroccans encounter plant parts separated from the ground on a daily basis, so too do they engage more than one model for relating to plants. Different plant partitions entice a varying array of interlocutors and interactants through sensory channels and communicability ideologies. In this article, the author introduces phytocommunicability, a process of mobilizing multiple interactional ideologies in interspecies communication. She suggests that phytocommunicative pluralism is key to understanding how plant piety is recognizable, yet unknowable.
