Plants are beautiful

Today I watched videos on YouTube. Saw a timelapse of a cotton plant growing. It was beautiful. Plants are beautiful.

A plant is a simple thing, really. A straw of organic matter that is composed of cells pumping things around (if I still remember my biology class lectures). But they can produce other cells - they live. This reproduction is what makes them beautiful - a plant, a single tube of matter, can grow into a bigger plant - sprout more tubes, eventually grow flowers and reproduce.

I want to buy a small plant, automate its watering and place a live-stream camera next to it. It'll also record a timelapse of the plant growing over time, which will probably be beautiful.

Which plant should I choose?
