Plant development is dynamic in nature. This is exemplified in developmental patterning, in which roots and shoots rapidly elongate while simultaneously giving rise to precisely positioned new organs over a time course of minutes to hours. In this Review, we emphasize the insights gained from simultaneous use of live imaging and transient perturbation technologies to capture the dynamic properties of plant processes.
