Plants get energy from more than photosynthesis. When their leaves move from a breeze it helps them grow also. I think they can get nutrition from
the air around them also, when you talk to them you breath out CO2 Vibration is energy, I am sure they can use that also, Plants are very evolved,
mankind has yet to accept that plants evolved a lot more than we did because they have been here way before an animal stepped on this planet. Sure,
photosynthesis is one of their ways of getting energy but by no means the only one. It seems like trees grow just as much in the shade also, it is
just the type of growth that happens that is the difference. If that shade is from other trees, they can get energy for growth from the big trees.
Look in the forest, how come some trees grow in the shade in one spot but others can't. Some trees have rhizomes.
