A centuries-old cycad specimen, a palm-like tree that is the world’s oldest living potted plant, has been re-potted, a worker at Kew Gardens in London says.
The tree arrived at Kew in 1775 and has been growing 1 inch in height and girth every year.
The delicate re-potting procedure required a crane, three months of careful planning and nine people guiding the trunk to place the plant in its new mahogany container. The pot is about 4 feet tall and holds a ton of soil to help support the leaning plant.
Nice work guys!
