Nature knows everything. We need to pay attention.
Plants plan ahead.
Let’s look at this vine.
It came up from some seeds of ornamental gourds that I threw out.
At each leaf joint is a bud cluster, which blooms one at a time, and a long three-pronged tendril.
Why such a big tendril for such a small bloom?
Because that little bloom will turn into a heavy squash/gourd.
That fruit will need to be supported if the vine is climbing.
The plant plans ahead by having a built in support system with each bloom. (Like a baby with a college fund.)
We will never know more than nature.
Pay attention people!
