A group of international researchers have revealed a unique feature which distinguish some plants. They can “sleep” for 20 years, in spite of the surrounding reality and other circumstances.
In accordance with the results of recent studies, some flowers can exist freely under the ground for 20 years, at the same time, they do not use photosynthesis. These include 114 species of plants, divided into 24 biological families. Plants resort to this “trick” in order to subsequently put your form in the most advantageous position.
Experts have established that such behavior is characteristic of the flowers belonging to the family “Orchidaceae” and some other plants in difficult conditions for survival prefer “hibernate” in order to receive future benefits from their temporary forced stop in development.
