Or is photosynthesis always perfectly calibrated?

    It is impossible for plants to become overweight. The sun's light, due to photosynthesis, provides a mathematically constant supply of sugar throughout the plant, based on its position and season. Besides, plants cannot store fat. They store starch. And whatever CO2 they do not use from the air around them, they expel as oxygen. Plants do not consume food. Also, plants do not have a specific height. They can continue to grow forever if conditions are right. But of course, gravity and the environment tend to set those boundaries. Hope this helps!

    They cannot and it has nothing to do with how photosynthesis is calibrated. They do not store fat. They just grow more stems and leaves and grow taller. They grow because they can and it is not unhealthy either way.

Why interior the international might she take a hazard which includes this? Her arrogance is exhibiting.
