Photo Gallery
A 234-year-old cycad (Encephalartos altensteninii)is believed to be the oldest potted plant. Workers at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew in London repotted it on July 29, 2009, for the first time. It was collected in the Eastern Cape region of South Africa by Francis Masson prior to 1775. (photo: Lewis Whyld/PA Wire URN:7645132-Press Association via AP Images)
