Growing Plants That Defy All Odds


It’s not easy to be a growing plant.  You need water, sunshine, nutrients, rest, and time to get where you want to go.  And although some plants don’t get all (or any) of those necessary things for growth, they decide to grow anyway.  It’s what we called being planted in adversity.  These plants keep on going, despite their circumstances…and there’s actually a lot we can learn from that.  Here are growing plants that defy all odds.

1. Crack in the concrete

This small shoot is bursting up, even pushing through a concrete road.  Now that’s sheer determination!


2. This tree is all about the music

This tree was going to keep on growing, even if a piano had been placed in her path.  But, look on the bright side, now she’s forever connected to a musical instrument.
