Experiment 13: Plant Movements and the Differential Growth of Plants Kyle McEnroe Partner: Brian Velardi Introduction : Plants are not known for their rapid movement and growth but, this experiment showed something different. The main purpose for this laboratory experiment was to observe plant growth directions when the plants are under different stimuli such as light, gravity, touch, and other circumstances. The two major movements associated with plant movements are nastic and tropistic movements. A tropistic movement is when the growth direction of the plant can be directly related to the stimulus. Nastic movements or “sleep movements” are unaffected by the direction from which the controlling stimulus is received. Each experiment involved auxin in some way, whether it is directly or indirectly. Auxin is one of the main ingredients that cause the growth and movement of plants. Methods: The procedure was followed according to the lab handout; Experiment 13: Plant Movements and the Differential Growth of Plants with one exception. When the
