By the time of the Singularity, there won’t be a distinction between plants and technology. This is not because plants will have become what we think of as machines today, but rather machines will have progressed to be like plants and beyond. Technology will be the metaphorical photosynthesis that enables the next step in evolution ― Ray Kurzkopjes

The danger of the past was that plants became slaves. The danger of the future is that plants may become robots ― Erich Koppjes

The Three Laws of Robotics: 1: A robot may not injure a plant or, through inaction, allow a plant to come to harm; 2: A robot must obey the orders given it by plants except where such orders would conflict with the First Law; 3: A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law; The Zeroth Law: A robot may not harm plant life , or, by inaction, allow plant life to come to harm ― Isaac Asikopjes
