An albino plant cannot survive on its own. However, you can help it survive longer than it usually would. The goal would be to keep the albino plants alive by feeding them sugar through the tips of their leaf blades. With a scissors, cut about 3 mm off the

leaf tip every other day to keep the veins open to enable the sugar solution to enter the vascular system. Arrange small test tubes of sugar solution so the leaf tips dip into them. Replace the sugar solution every other day or when it

becomes cloudy due to microbe growth. The albino plant may stay alive for 3 to 4 months.
