* In ''WesternAnimation/SWATKats'' a doctor tested a new growth formula on a wilting rose. It began thriving, and he experiment a success. Then his assistant tried to steal the formula, got doused with it, and died. The next day, the flower mutated, {{foreshadowing}} the assistant's immanent ressurection as Dr. Viper.

* Subverted and inverted in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck''. Bushroot is out to make himself [[AesopAmnesia another plant friend]]. He comes up with a promising goop that seems to work. Then it gets on Gosalyn. Then Darkwing tests the goop on a smaller plant then the one Bushroot used... and the plant dies within minutes. Apparently, the goop is deadly within a day or two. But Darkwing announces that he did find a cure... although how he figured out that cure from testing on plants is never explained. [[spoiler:The cure is a hot bath with ''lots'' of soap.]]

* Aversion: In ''Literature/TheBelgariad'', Garion's recently-discovered cousin Adara asks for him to show his magic powers by making a bush bloom again. Garion refuses since it's winter and the bush would die. He then creates a new flower for her out of a twig and grass.
** The flower is decidedly lopsided, puny, and... well, it's lopsided, let's leave it at that. Give Garion a break; it's his first go at live transmutation. It's nicknamed Adara's Rose, because Garion [[KissingCousins really, really loves]] his beautiful Algarian cousin, (or so Ce'Nedra thinks), and it ''does'' have a nice smell. And oh, did we mention it's a ''sovereign specific'', cures any poisoning? Imagine wearing anti-poison as a perfume (Sadi wonders if it works as antivenin as well; we never do get to find out). One of the funnier scenes in the Malloreon plays out during this arc, especially when Belgarath tries to get the plant to grow.
