Plant Devas

The term 'plant devas' became popularized in the 1970's when
the Findhorn movement from Scotland was set in the public eye.

A plant deva is said to be a nature spirit, which guides the growth
of vegetation. It is a fairy. The word 'deva' is Sanskrit, and properly
means 'god,' the plural 'devi' meaning 'goddess.'
