Garden with Insight v1.0 Help: Plant drawing next day functions: inflorescence next day

An inflorescence is a stalk that holds flowers. Some plants don't have inflorescences because their flowers are single, but we encompass all plants here by always having an inflorescence (even if it only has one flower). The inflorescence is created by a reproductive meristem and it begins to demand reproductive biomass for its growth. Creation of flowers by the inflorescence has nothing to do with biomass accumulation: it just creates the flowers according to a timetable of the number of flowers expected and the number of days to create them. Like the placement of inflorescences, this is a mechanism to ensure that the plants look the way they are supposed to look.
