Tropism

This is a picture of my blackberry vine that is growing up the side of my  backyard gate. The vine has curved its way through the hole and up the lattice as it grows. A tropism is a plants way of growing in response to a stimulus. In this case the fence is in the plant’s way, it is the stimulus.
