This question already has an answer here:

Could a potato stay alive and power a clock while growing in the ground?

I know how a potato clock works as a electrochemical cell enter image description here and involves chemistry, but I am only interested in a growing plants ability to grow and recover lost compounds, water or otherwise during this process while in the ground.

enter image description here

Side question: How much power could come from one potato? enter image description here Source is in the picture.

    $\begingroup$ Muze, please stop reposting this question. You’ve asked it here before (biology.stackexchange.com/questions/69376/…) and on Physics as well (physics.stackexchange.com/questions/277693/a-live-potato-light). If the answers are unsatisfactory to you in those places, please comment or edit your previous q’s rather than reposting duplicates. $\endgroup$ – Dubukay Jun 19 at 15:16
