Plants on orbit grew skew and wave, but in a novel way. Enlargements of 5 day old WS ground control and flight plants to show near vertical root growth (A, B) compared to the waving behavior of 5 day old WS plants grown on 45 degree inclined agar plates in unit gravity (C). Enlargements of 8.5 day old WS and Col-0 ground control and flight plants to show skewing and waving patterns of root growth (D, E) compared to the waving behavior of 8.5 day old WS and Col-0 plants grown on 45 degree inclined agar plates in unit gravity (F).
