The Scientific Method 2 Observation: I have observed that as a plant grows, it will grow towards a source of light instead of growing straight or away from the light source. Question: Is it the light that causes the plant to grow at an angle instead of straight up? Is it just a fluke produced by that plant? Is it the wind or maybe heat which causes this? Hypothesis: A plant will grow towards a light source as it strives to produce photosynthesis. Prediction: If different types of plants are grown where no wind or heat can influence them while being exposed to a light source and they do not grow straight but towards the light source, then wind and heat have nothing to do with it and it is the light source causing the plants to grow at an angle. Testing: Plants were grown inside of four sided, glass containers where the tops were opened to prevent any wind or heat from influencing the experiment. Different types of plants were used to rule out that it is only a certain plant type. All variables were kept the same.
