Definition of geotropy

Categorized under "General"

Definition as written by paulgrow:

Growing up or down (generally down toward the earth) due to gravity

Definition as written by Magpye:

Not a commonly used term but it is the response to gravity. Plant parts that grow downward, such as the roots, would be positive geotropism. A negative geotropism would be the stems growing upward.
