We present here the concept of “in-plant” NMR and show that high-resolution NMR spectroscopy is suitable for the analysis of intact plants and can be used to follow the changes in the intraorganismal molecular composition over long time periods. The NMR-based analysis of the effect of different concentrations of heavy water on the aquatic plant Vesicularia dubyana
revealed that due to the presence of specific adaptive mechanisms this plant can sustain the presence of up to 85% of D2
O. However, it dies in 100% heavy water.
