Abstract
Roots grow downwards parallel to the gravity vector, to anchor a plant in soil and acquire water and nutrients, using a gravitropic mechanism dependent on the asymmetric distribution of the phytohormone auxin. Recently, Chang et al. demonstrate that asymmetric distribution of another phytohormone, cytokinin, directs root growth towards higher water content.
