In: Biology

Depending on the plant, some have an actual lifecycles and will die but regrow(their death is how they spread seeds and stuff), some will continue to grow until. It just depends on the plant.

Technically plants are “immortals”. This means that until they have proper conditions they just grow and live.

With trees, they have two types of growth cells: The ones that make them taller and the ones that make them larger. The ones that make them taller will die off over time, but the other ones will just continue forever
