Plant hormones

Like in humans, plants have hormones, however they have different functions in plants.

Three types of hormones:

  • Auxins
    • Growth hormones
    • Control phototropism (growing to light) and gravitropism (growing to gravity)
    • In shoots, auxin elongates cells, so it accumulates on the opposite side to the light source
    • In roots, it stops
