Beans all twirl the same direction

See...all the same way.

This may seem silly to you serious gardeners, but I couldn't help but notice, all of my 18 bean plants are twirling around the bamboo poles in the same direction. My mind, of course, went right to the obvious question. Is that a northern hemisphere thing, and they twirl the opposite way in the southern hemisphere? Anyone??


  1. It's called "geotrophic" ..yes it would be the opposite in the southern hemisphere!!
