In this gravity experiment you will study how plants grow. This plant experiment test how well a tomato plant grows when placed in a planter upside down. Under normal conditions a tomato plant is placed in the ground with the top sticking out above ground level. The roots grow downward as the top of the plant grows upward.
This science experiment turns everything upside down. The plant is expected to grow out of the bottom of the container and the roots are to grow upward toward the top. If you are interested in doing a science project on this subject you need to grow a second tomato plant in a container. You can then compare the growth rates of the two plants.
