"It wasn`t dying. Plants use water to keep their cells rigid; when they get dehydrated they deflate a bit and get droopy. Watering them is kind of like blowing up a baloon."

Oh, it wasnt dying? so you mean if they hadn`t of watered it then it would be fine, because it wasnt dying? I`m no botanist, but i`m calling you out here.

It is a coleus which are pretty hardy, and it wasn`t dead, it was wilted. The only remarkable thing is that someone had the foresight to film it.

Did it ever occur to you that Lemonstand may actually have be right by suspecting trickery? For those of you saying "But, theres a clock in the video", maybe its not actually a clock but a countdown timer set for 10 hours and 20 minutes or 10:20. Then as the plant dies it counts backwards and when the video is reversed the plant comes back to life as the time apparently moves forward. It`s a simple misdirection.Don`t believe everything you see(especially on the internet) and be careful when calling people fools that you`re not the one being fooled.

"I thought most plants needed some wind or other movement to help pump water up their stalks..."

What? No. Osmotic pressure and capillary action pumps water into and up plant roots and stalks.

@ZMDalph- Plants don`t visibly grow in 30 minutes. This dehydrated plant is becoming more rigid as its cells fill with water- it`s inflating.

That was cool- never checked how long it actually takes, although my Easter cactus takes over a day, but I assume that it because it is a succulent.

No they don`t! They friggin` DIE. They die if you water them, they die if you don`t water them, they die if they get too much sun, they die if they get too little sun, most of the time they just die to annoy you!
