A garlic clove has been growing very well inside a closed refrigerator.
It has developed beautiful green stalks, which I think are the equivalent of leafs. Since they are green, I assume they contain chlorophyll.
Without any source of sunlight (for photosynthesis) or soil (for nutrients), how can such a plant thrive so well?
Is it simply growing off the internal stored energy of the clove itself?
Will it continue to grow without sunlight and soil?
