1) To grow or sprout as a plant by nutriment imbibed through roots and leaves.
Ultimately from L. vegetatus, p.p. of vegetare "to enliven, to animate," from vegetus "vigorous, enlivened, active," from vegere "to be alive, active;" akin to Skt. vaja- "force, strength;" PIE root *weg- "to be strong, be lively."
