both Added correction : It is chemical because you can not simply revert it (newly grown hair) back to its original compounds. Plants (newly grown) are product of many (bio)chemical synthesis reactions. It is much the same as growing animals or humans.
Water , dissolved nutrients , and byproducts of photosynthesis are stored in the cactus stem. The water and the dissolved nutrients are sent up into the stem from the cactus plant's roots. They're held in the stem until they can be used in the photosynthetic interaction with sunlight. From that...
Yes, so long as the cold doesn't damage the seed or the plant. Liquid water shouldn't be much of a problem, but the direct contact of ice might cause some damage. Then again, tropical plants will be more sensitive than hardy plants.

They make their food out of sunlight in a process called photosynthesis.
During the daytime, plants produce energy in the form of ATP and NADPH (light reactions)...during the night, these energy forms go to the dark reactions (Calvin Cycle) to fuel the production of organic molecules from CO2 collected during the day...some of these organic molecules will be stored ...

plants need light to carry on photosynthesis, and if you are wondering what that is that is how the plants make food
It would be "Toyota Corolla.
Many plants will reach for the light, all you need to do is turn the on quarter turn every other day or so to even out the growth. The actual property of the plant that causes it is called phototropism. Plant hormones on the "dark" side of the plant called auxins react to the lack of light and...
