Who knows?

It could be nearly anything. For starters it could become sturdier and have a stronger structure, or it could develop a looser structure that harnessed the pressure and help it grow. It could be nearly anything!


Most likely yes. If a cactus was planted in a damp area, then it may grow very slow, as it does not need much water. If an orange tree was planted in a desert, it would surely die, as it needs plenty of water.

Yes, the environment affects plant growth. A species that is native to a dry region or desert are can be expected to have adaptations that will allow it to grow with the minimal amount of water, it may also have storage mechanisms to store food that it produced when water is in abundance. For example the cactus, it has spines instead of leaves to reduce transpiration as well as deter predators that may try to eat it, it has an extensive and shallow root system to quickly absorb any rain that may fall. Cacti for example store up energy and produce few, but highly attractive flowers which die within a very short space of time.

Plants in the tropics/ jungles have large leaves as they compete actively with other plants under the canopy of trees for light and water. They flower more often and for longer periods, they may have edible fruits to attract as many animals as possible in order to spread their seeds.

A more local and easier way of observing the environmental differences in plants is to look at house plants. Exactly the same plant will adapt within a few weeks to changes in light intensity, air movement of watering. For example if you move a plant away from a window within a few weeks the stem will start to bend and stretch towards the light and the leaves may increase in size (to offer greater exposure to light). They may not undergo a complete metamorphosis but will adapt as best as possible to survive in the environment they are placed in.
