Episode 9 – PlantsEpisode 9 – Plants

The drama of the plant world is impossible to view with the naked eye. But using time-lapse technology, all is revealed. See how a Venus flytrap snaps shut and imprisons its prey, and how the animal-like grasping hooks of the cat’s claw creeper and the sticky pads of the Boston ivy help in their fight for light. Fly with the seed that inspired the design of gliders and watch the fastest growing plant on Earth rocket up two feet a day.
