Why does the stem of creepers trail on the ground while the stem of climbers take the support of their surrounding structures?

Dear friend Shreyas,
Here is the answer to your query.
1.Creepers have weak stem and cannot stand erect or upright as fruit or vegetables grow in them are also heavy.So,stems of creepers trail on ground.
2.Stems of climbers are also weak like the stems of creepers.So,they take the support of other strong plants or objects by the help of coiled structures called tendrils present in their stems to stand upright or erect.

Hope it helps you!!

creepers do not have much power to climb with the help of support but clibers have tendrils which make strong grip on support and climb
