Del Sol Sun-Fun Fact #2 – Plants Reach for the Sun

#2 Did You Know…?

The phenomenon of plants growing towards the sun is called photo-tropism.

Plants need light energy to perform photosynthesis (create food). The plants detect the location of the sun and then its tissues and organs work together to perform a photo response.

This is the plant physically moving towards the sun. Have you ever noticed this about your plants – especially the ones indoors?


The flowers featured in this Sun Fact are from Del Sol’s Plumeria hair clip package, which contains several plumeria flowers that change from clear to either purple, fuchsia, yellow or magenta with sunlight.

What kind of flower would you like Del Sol to feature in a color-changing product?
