This section aims to briefly cover, in a somewhat simplified form, some of the specific
aspects of plant physiology that relate to the growing of plants with electricity. This is
normally a very complex subject that includes knowledge of many closely related fields
such as biochemistry, bioelectricity, cell biology and molecular biology. However, by
forming a basis of understanding as to why plants respond as they do, it will help with
understanding why some of the effects are observed. Furthermore, it will give clues as to

Physiological Effects from Electric Field Stimulation
Let's begin by covering the topic of electrotropism, or how plants respond to electricity
from a movement perspective.
Electricity and Polar Cells
Similar to the way that plants grow towards a light source, with electroculture, some plants
exhibit a similar response in the way that their roots grow towards or away from electrical
