Plants are so pivotal for me. It started with reading and learning about medicinals but that was very incomplete as a source of real education. i began foraging. Actual identification. The more you do this, the better your hearing gets. There is a visual aspect of course but as you progress you might head to the woods with no direction. BOOM you stumble onto elderberry to arrive home and find your husband has a sore throat and you’ve carried home the ingredients for a remedy syrup! Of course, be sure you know what you have...the point is in the listening. I recommend collecting and confirming many times before you actually use anything. This might sound crazy but I find that cultivated plants are not as loud. In developing any kind of relationship with plants, I’d suggest starting with wild stuff.
