Dead plant, how long, can you tell?

Well, About the color, I think there will be no green color especially in the meristematic regions of the plant body. Since you said No sun, then it means no light will penetrate the parts of the plant body, hence, the plastids which are responsible for photosynthesis ...

Re: GRASS...

Meristematic cells at the shoot region are more active during warm period. Sunlight provides more energy for cell divisions, enhance photosynthesis and therefore more food to produce new morphological parts. No wonder tropics ...

Mitosis and Meiosis

... that ‘grow’ is limited to the number of cells produced by mitosis. Mature differentiated cells rarely (if ever) ‘grow’ much. Also, the amount of meristematic tissue is quite large and widely distributed throughout plant. Most plant cells can dedifferentiate to become meristem cells as well when ...
