Your Electronic Mail Is Important To Us

We here at Very Little Known Facts are overwhelmed and humbled by the volume of correspondence we've been receiving from every corner of the globe. (A big, old-school shout-out to our fans in Barcelona, Paris, Northhamptonshire, Switzerland, Nova Scotia, and--of course--Brooklyn in da house!) Unfortunately we won't be able to respond to every single inquiry, but several readers have asked about the common fallacy that plants grow towards the source of their light. False! Certainly it appears that way to the casual observer, but remember that plants have no muscle tissue and cannot "move" under their own power. No, plants and trees are at the mercy of the prevailing winds blowing towards the sun, always in the opposite direction from the solar wind. And that's another Very Little Known Fact for you!

As always, please direct your comments and questions to
