I am conducting an experiment for a science fair project. I am aiming to exhibit what geotropism is and how it affects plant growth. For my experiment, i am planning to grow plants at different angles (upside down, sideways, for example) to see if geotropism always makes a plant's root grow towards the center of the earth. As a component of the experiment, i want to inhibit geotropism in some of my plants (to see if the plants will continue to grow normally even though they are upside down- like if the roots will grow upward and the stems down). I know that abscisic acid is a part of why geotropism can effect plants. But i want to know how to inhibit the abscisic acid so i can eliminate the effects of geotropism in my experiment to compare the plants that havent been effected with those that have.
Re: How can I inhibit abscisic acid in plants?
