Mystery Monday - Name This Plant Reaction

Monday April 14, 2014
Tendrils curl around other plants because of this reaction

Welcome to Mystery Monday!

For this week, please name the botanical term for the reaction you see in the picture, where tendrils have curled around the stem. I'm working on a new piece that explains the biological reactions that plants can have in response to stimuli. This is the one in reaction to touching.

Good luck!
