I really wonder how they can grow like this! There is so much planning and direction inside!

As a botanist, I can confirm that. The growth patterns are directed by phytohormons really precisely.

Ha, thanks for that word 'phytohormons', now I can study that field some more!
A botanist, very very interesting!
Are you working in a plant selling company or maybe even in the research area or a bigger Garden?
Can you determine this (the other) plant? You can see more of it on this photo:

One should study phytohormons, their programming must be genuine!

I'm doing a PhD in the field of botany. My specialisation are trees, however, so I can't tell what plant it is just from my head, but I can try to find it in our books later.

What a beautiful image! The color of the blurs in the background are magnificent! When I look at this, I see a wonderful concept. The stem is all twisted, so I take that to be a "path" that the plant has followed on that was perhaps a difficult one- times of stormy weather or times without sun or water. And then it's almost as if the bigger leaf is "struggling" which is why it is bending to the side, but it it is still offering something up, the other leaf as a sign of its sacrifices, its offering and/or meaning to the world. Even without this concept, though, the execution of this picture is astounding. I absolutely love it! (:

very interesting to read your comments, thank you very much!

I find it interesting that the direction of the plant stays the same, even after the leave grew to the left side. The plant finds its exact position again and it has a plan where to grow. Its programming is genius and the accuracy that is found in the symmetrical growth is amazing. There must be some brilliant senses inside the cells that directs everything.

Just imagine about 20 people to form a word or phrase with their bodies, the coordination between each member of the idea must be perfect to make a word out of the shape of people. But this plant has millions of cells and all of them are created by the same DNA and something inside the plant must tell them what is their job, their position, their task. And all of them are working together to make the organism successful. There must be something inside the coordination of cells that we don't know yet - well, at least I have not heard about anything that can explain such perfect constructions.
