The internet has provided access to some incredible information so I am always surprised when I come across something as unbelievably cool as this video by the Smithsonian Channel. In an episode of ‘Amazing Plants’ they feature ‘Unbelievable footage of Plants Exploding’ along with an explanation of the bizarre occurrence.
The video is exactly what you think, it highlights 3 plants that build up pressure inside overtime and then burst, sending seeds about at a startling velocity. The best is by far the cucumber at the end. Something about plants doing animal things… just gives me the creeps!
