Question: If plants are also living things, why do they not have consciousnesses, like humans, animals and such?

Answer: This question is similar to asking – ‘If apples are also fruits, why do they not taste like oranges?’ The answer is – ‘They are indeed both fruits, but apples are nevertheless not oranges.’

Plant life is life, but it is simply not complex enough to be sentient life, to have consciousness, memory, emotions, will and such. Even scientists agree that plants are non-sentient. Nature is simply what it is – naturally. If nature is another way, we would be asking why is it that way, to no end!
