Roots of the agravitropic pea (Pisum sativum L.) mutantageotropum show positive hydrotropism, whereas roots of Alaska peas are hydrotropically almost non-responsive. When the gravitropic response was nullified by rotation on clinostats, however, roots of Alaska peas showed unequivocal positive hydrotropism in response to a water potential gradlent. These results suggest that roots of Alaska peas possess normal ability to respond hydrotropically and their weak hydrotropic response results from a counteracting effect of gravitropism.
