grapevine shoots and water

    2 responses

MelRaine starts with ...
I have a an established grapevine growing on the top of a fence. Some of the canes have left the trellis and are hanging down, and one ended up in a bowl of water (a disused fountain). I've moved it out but find it returns. Is this coincidence, or could the new shoots be absorbing the water?

Hi Mel

Yes plants can absorb water through their leaves during high humidity episodes like foggy days and during water evaporation process that's why your grape vine is drawn to the bowl of water, just like a sunflower following the movement of the sun. Eliminate the source of liquid and the shoots might resume their growth normally.
Happy gardening 😎

Thanks! The vine is fairly undisciplined so I don't mind it being there. One of the 2 shoots has gone brown, the other healthy. I guess I'll keep watching and learning!
