The main stem was clearly still growing as most of it had been perfectly vertical before and now has an S-shape. That stem has 46cm of height between the first curve down and the tray. I had hoped that reducing the light to 11 hours and ten minutes would provoke it to flower before it hit the tray.
I think these are interesting adaptations for a plant that dangles off cliffs. Almost instantly branching when it encounters an obstacle, but still growing down in the hope that some wind might dislodge it and allow it to continue down.
The younger main stem has decided to add variety by growing up, away from the lights. Are they negatively phototropic (growing away from light)?
