Get to know the complete plant movement


When talking about the existing system in plants, namely the motion system. Did friends understand their meaning itself? Maybe in this activity we can often see it every day because one of the most important characteristics of living things is movement. 

There are two kinds of monkeys in plants, namely passive and active movements, for motion that is owned by humans is active motion, while in plants it is entered in passive motion. oh, in full, let's look at the article below about motion in plants, just go straight to our main discussion today.

 Understanding of motion in plants 

mobile activity is a characteristic that is owned by each of the plant living things, of course, they also have a movement system, your friend. Have you ever studied about the system of motion in plants? Moving activities such as a person moving from place to place can be called active motion.

However, we need to know that not all of them move places or also certain movements whose motion is called passive motion. by various types of plants basically themselves Plants carry out a movement because of the sensitivity process to their own stimuli or irritability. 

As a response to the stimulation of the plant's motion, then the plant will then make a movement that is sure to go to the source of the stimulation or may even move away from the source of the stimulus.

so friends, all the meanings of the motion system in plants are the same as human motion as one of the characteristics of living things themselves, it's just that plant movements are carried out passively, not like humans whose movements are very clearly visible to the eye.

The kinds of movements that exist in plants 

There are two systems in plants in the motion system. Broadly speaking, there are two, namely etionomic motion and endonomic motion, but from the outline of this movement it is further divided into several direct divisions. 

Endonomic motion 

Endonomic motion is the motion that occurs in plants when the plant is not influenced by internal stimuli or the plant itself. It can also be said that the motion in this plant is the result of simulations and the influence of the plant. This endonomic motion is further divided into two hygroscopic motion and nutation motion to explain it below

 Motion nutation 

Nutation motion is a movement in plants that occurs when spontaneously due to external stimuli, for example, from the movement of nutrients, including the movement of cytoplasmic flow in aquatic plants, commonly called hydrillia verticillata.

 Hygroscopic motion 

Hygroscopic motion is a movement caused by changes in water content. An example of a movement that enters the microscopic is the breaking of a pea. 

Ethionome motion 

Esionome motion is a movement that occurs when the stimulus comes from outside the plant. This movement can be caused by various factors such as water, light, gravity, air temperature and chemicals and many more. Crafts are further divided into sections 

Movement of tropism 

tropism motion is the movement of activity in plants whose direction of motion is influenced by the arrival of stimuli. The motion of tropism is divided into several, among others


This movement is influenced by the arrival of Earth's gravity. Tropism is of two kinds, namely negative geotropism and positive geotropism positive geotropism its downward movement and into the ground for negative geotropism its upward movement

 Sure motion

This movement is a movement that occurs in plants whose direction of motion is not influenced by the stimulation of this motion. There are also several kinds 


this movement is the movement is influenced by the arrival of light stimuli, for example, such as nine o'clock flowers and four o'clock flowers that bloom when exposed to sunlight 


This movement is a movement that can occur due to temperature stimulation, for example, occurs in tulips when spring comes.

 Motion taxis

movement of the taxis is a movement that occurs in all plants due to stimulation as well as motion in the explanation above, this taxis motion is also divided into several types


This movement is a movement throughout the tissue of the plant body that occurs due to the stimulation of light such as an example of movement that is always near light


make a movement that occurs due to chemical stimulation such as the moss spermatozoid which moves because it is attracted by a sugar and protein substance.
