    The roots and stem would curl around such that the roots would grow toward Earth and the stem would grow toward the sky.
    The artificial G forces would cause the roots to grow toward the middle of the drum and the stem to grow away from the middle.
    The artificial G forces would cause the roots to grow away from the middle of the drum and the stem to grow toward the middle.
    The roots and stem would grow in the direction they were oriented, because they could no longer be influenced by Earths gravitational forces.
