Plants grow spirally, making them turn as they go. When a tendril hits something, it starts to naturally wind around it. As the tension builds, the plant starts to grow around the tension, creating the loop that pushes the spiral the other way.

It's all just a mindless engineering reaction. Nothing to see here.
