This Plant Has Not Been Watered in Over 40 Years and It’s Still Growing

“It’s 6ft from a window so gets a bit of sunlight. It grows towards the light so it gets turned round every so often so it grows evenly,” Latimer told the Daily Mail. “Otherwise, it’s the definition of low-maintenance. I’ve never pruned it, it just seems to have grown to the limits of the bottle.”Latimer had no idea that the plant would survive since it hasn’t been watered since 1972. Latimer, now 80, plans on passing the plant down to his children to see how long it can last. See how you can create your own version of Latimer’s giant terrarium below.
