Submission + - World's first self watering plant discovered. (sciencedaily.com)

squiggly12 writes: Researchers from the Department of Science Education-Biology at the University of Haifa-Oranim have managed to make out the "self-irrigating" mechanism of the desert rhubarb, which enables it to harvest 16 times the amount of water than otherwise expected for a plant in this region based on the quantities of rain in the desert. This is the first example of a self-irrigating plant worldwide.

It's interesting as to how this plant evolved in the desert.
