Squash Vines Will Move Towards Water

If you place a bowl of water a couple feet away from a thirsty squash vine (pumpkin, spaghetti, butternut etc.) during a drought or when the soil is on the dry side, the vine will actually move towards the water and eventually place itself right in the bowl.

It doesn’t take long. Usually if you set the bowl of water out in the evening a vine will have found its way into it by morning.

If this sounds a bit like plant torture, well, that’s because it is. But it is also pretty amazing!
