The movement of the sensitive plant's leaves is touch-sensitive and independent of growth, which is known as thigmotropism.
The growth-related tendency of the shoot toward light is known as phototropism.
|1.The movement of the sensitive plant's leaves is a nastic movement known as thigmotropism.
||1.Phototropism is a tropical movement that causes a shoot to gravitate towards light.|
|2. Plants typically exhibit non-directional nastic motions with no specific route.
||2.Tropical motions are unidirectional, depending on where the stimulus originates from.|
|3.Nastic motions are quick.
||3. Tropical motion is extremely slow.|
|4. These motions are conveyed by a plant's flat parts (such as leaves and petals).
||4. All sections of a plant express these motions, as in the movement of a shoot toward the light rather than gravity.|
