Do plants die of old age?
If you gave a plant the right conditions for ever could it theoretically live for ever?

A host plant itself cannot live forever, nothing lives forever thats one of lifes inevitibilities... However, theoretically, each time you "clone" a plant which essentially means you propagate a clipping of the mother plant, it develops roots and becomes its very own self standing plant, with the exact same DNA (yes plants have dna too) as its host plant, there really isnt any conceivable reason why it couldnt live forever... i know i know its not really applicable to your question being that its not the original host plant.. wishful thinking i guess

Negligence will kill a plant fast...
Nevertheless, nothing lives forever....
I have seen plants last for many many years, I kid you not, so it's highly dependent upon the plant and how it is cared for....
Some plants have last significantly longer than others based upon their genetic makeup, while others die every year and resurrect back to life for no apparent reason.. :D
The answer is simply no, nothing last forever, but there are factors which can greatly effect the lifespan of a plan, which should be considered...
No Sunlight or No Water can kill a plant fast, though some plants do not like Sunlight!
