Double-ended passionflower arrangement

Passionflower vine in two vases

While disentangling a rampant passionflower vine from my cherry tomatoes, I accidentally broke off a section. It broke at both ends, and then I couldn’t figure out which end needed to be in water, so I just hedged my bet with two vases. I still don’t know which direction the plant’s hydraulic system is going but it doesn’t matter, because it is surviving surprisingly well. Maybe this system actually pulls more water through the plant—anyone know the relevant plant physics? I assume the hydraulic system is uni-directional. Anyway, I’ve always wanted a way to include vines in flower arrangements and this seems to solve that problem.
