im supposed to make a maze and cover it up. then plant a plant at the starting point. i put some light in parts of the maze and see if the plant grows the end! so how do i make the maze?
This maze idea won't work unless the plants can at least SENSE the sunlight. (Plant's growth towards the sun is called phototropism, and is caused by plant hormones called auxins). Unless the plants at least SENSE light, there's no way it could grow towards that. For example, you can't put a plant in a dark closet and expect it to grow towards your lamp that's outside the closet.
