When I was a child in Brooklyn I grew Morning Glories on our fire-escape.
(a sordid childhood, but still, an horticultural one). I was fascinated by
vining because it happened so fast, you could go away and come back in half
an hour and something sould have vined round. I sometimes undid the vines
and wound them the other way just to see what would happen. but I don't
remember if anything did. I believe there is a jungle vine which can make a
12'dia circle in a 24 hour period.
Somebody out there must know if vining has a geo-magnetic kinesthetic
parathyroid module. Who can we ask?
