There aren't any wires in there. It looks like he's just changing the light manually when he touches it via some controller off screen.
The plant really has nothing to do with it except that it becomes part of the capacitance-sensing circuit in the controller base. The LEDs change color in a programmed sequence when a large increase in capacitance (your body mass) is added; you'll note it also changes when the hands touch the vase alone.

Capacitance-sensing circuitry is nothing new. Neither is a color-changing cluster of LEDs.
Thanks, rob! My only choice of explanation was MAGIC!?!?!
Where can I buy one?
awesome. i saw a lamp like this not too long ago. the base was a planter box with a sensor board at the bottom. i didn't take any video, but this was the lamp:
