When coleoptiles of etiolated canary grass seedlings were illuminated from one side, a strong positive curvature (positive phototropism, growth toward the light source) resulted. If the tip of the coleoptile was darkened by a tin foil cap and only the lower part was unilaterally illuminated, curvature usually did not result. However, when he reversed this procedure, that is, when only the lower part was darkened and the coleoptile tip was exposed, curvature resulted. 5 to 4 mm of the tip is removed.
