vocab test

question: are the sharp, needlelike growths sprouting from the joints of this twig: 1) thorns, 2) spines, 3) prickles, or 4) trichomes? (FWIW i haven’t been able to figure it out, and i’m really anxious to hear from you…)

(unidentified) stem with thorns

    Ok, I fell for it and went right down the rabbit hole! Interesting journey, for sure. I, like you, have no idea, but I think that in order to determine the answer you ought to first determine what the plant is. And is this really a vocab question, or a science question? Anyhow, I learned something new, thanks MJ!
