Geotropism When plants are placed horizontally they exhibit growth response to the stimulus of one-sided gravity. It is called geotropism or gravitropism. The tip of the stem grows away from the pull of the gravity (negative geotropism) and the root tips grow towards it (positive geotropism). The plant responses to unilateral gravity are growth movements because the resulting curvatures occurs ...
