Vines in the shade, reaching for the sun
Vine on a Fence
Hello! I was just curious...I have a vine along my back fence. It is mostly shaded and it has these darling little shoots that have reached up and grabbed onto a tree limb above it.
I wondered...because I know nothing of real plant science...is the 'satellite' vine able to do it's photosynthesis thing for the good of the whole of the vine, or does it just help the leaves and vine that are in the sun itself? In other words, does it share and pass along its benefits from the sunlight?
