How hard is it to kill a plant? As you may have experienced, some plants are very easy to kill, while others seem virtually indestructible.
What makes a plant hard-to-kill? The answer lies in its biology. When you’re trying to grow something that will survive conditions like drought and extreme temperatures, you need to give it the traits it needs for survival. These can include:

- Thick bark (for protection against heat)
- A large root system (for storing water for long periods)
