Watching flowers get transplanted is strangely hypnotic

I never thought about it before but it makes sense.

Ditto! Makes sense if agriculture can be automated so can gardening. I still like the idea of gardener's loving hands in the deal though.

I'm sure that's how they sow seeds as well!

Yes, they would have to use a similar method for sowing the seeds in order for the transplant system to work. It really is fascinating to watch!
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.
