Why do plants in sunlight grow faster than a plant in the shade?
Plants rely on photosynthesis to create energy for all of their
cellular functions. The more sun the plant takes in, the more
energy it is able to produce, thus allowing it to grow faster.

Do plants grow faster in sun or in shade?
plants vary dramatically as to how much sunlight would benefit them. some plants grow better in direct sunlight while others thrive shaded conditions. the fact is all plants need sunlight to produce food through photosynthesis. so the best answer is that the vast majority of plants grow better in sunlight rather than shade
