Looking to see if a plant prop is possible

I'm currently in the process of writing a screenplay surrounding a plant. The thing I want to know is if its possible to construct. I was looking for the plant to be very large and long. Similar to the corpse flower or the giant yellow pod flower used in the film Jumanji. I was looking to have it move as well. I currently have no idea or knowledge on how to make this work. I wanted to know if this prop is possible before i go ahead and green light my screenplay. If anyone wants to help me out or knows any prop makers it'd be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Hi Demetrius,

    Something like that should be possible.  The big is how much movement (and what typer of movement) do you need? 

    Depending on your budget you could go as simple as a hand puppet operated by a performer under a raised deck or hiding behind the plant, a marionette style puppet operated from wires, a rod puppet, or a cable operated puppet.  And those are just quick options.   I usually start with the simplest option to se if it can pull off the effect you are after.
