You can also keep plants alive in the dark for a very long time if you provide sugar and vitamins. So, water it with sugar/blood/water mixture and you can keep it in the dark for a very very long time.

and also in forest if you're small you do not get that much light thus you have to grow taller to reach sunlight.

Cis or trans? That's what matters.
