Scientists eventually found the answer to the question of why sunflowers often turn to the sun during the day and why they avoid following the sun and keep “looking” to the east when they reach a certain maturity.
Since 1898, scientists study and examine these herbs to understand why they track the sun, from east to west and vice versa.
Sunflowers and their movement are clarified by so-called sunflowers according to scientists. Circadian rhythm – that is, changes in the behavior of an organism that are related to the change of hours in a day and night.For sunflowers, the movement cycle is 24 hours during one day, the same as hours for one day.
But why move from east to west, just like the sun?
According to scientists, sunflowers move to the sun for evolutionary reasons. Namely, according to research, sunflowers move towards the sun, because it is the most important prerequisite for them to be larger and to have as many flower leaves as possible. Science confirms that the larger a sunflower, the more bees it will attract, insects that help the flowers in the breeding process.
