Q. Does sunlight effect leaf growth?

Does sunlight effect leaf growth?


Sunlight does affect leaf growth, as it is the source of energy that fuels all processes in a plant. Light energy enters a leaf and is converted to useable energy in the chloroplasts through photosynthesis. Photosynthesis requires that chloroplasts in the plant’s leaf are supplied with H2O and  CO2, in addition to light.
