Phedre Fitton had the last laugh after losing her five-year battle with cancer in 2013.

Shortly before she died, the 69-year-old cheekily asked her husband, Nigel Fitton, to keep watering the plants in the bathroom of their South Africa home.

He faithfully did so for several years until his recent move into a retirement home, when it was pointed out to him that the plants he’d been caring for were, in fact, made of plastic.

Antonia Nicol, a firefighter from London, shared details of her late mother’s amusing prank on Twitter Tuesday.

In subsequent tweets, Nicol had described her mother as “very funny” and “an absolute legend” with a “cheeky sense of humour.”

“It would have tickled her so much to know that he’s actually done it,” she said.

Nigel had been “overcome with grief” after losing Phedre, whom he first met when they were both just 16 years old. Watering the plants “gave him something to do,” Nicol said. Her father “thought the toilet had a leak due to the puddles on the floor.”

Nicol, who used a stock photograph for her initial tweet, later shared a snap of her father re-enacting the watering of his plastic ferns.

Both of Nicol’s posts have now gone viral.

“When I tweeted it, I thought about 10 people would look at it,” she said. Nicol was “staggered” at the amount of interest her story had generated.

“It’s also inspired people to open about the loss of their own loved ones,” she told HuffPost. “In times of awful news, it’s been really lovely to talk about something really sweet.”

These kinds of threads are pointless who cares, they're not funny, entertaining, or even informative. Stop the drivel. Its right up there with copying news articles and only adding "what do you think? " afterwards
