Expert Answer:

Auxin is produced in the apical meristem of the stem. Production of auxins is affected by light. Light causes auxin to move laterally to the shaded side in the apical meristem. The shaded side will have a higher concentration of auxin than the lighted side. Certain receptors absorb blue light and helps transport auxin to the unlighted side where cells respond by elongating.
