Hormesis is a positive effect after introducing a small dose of a toxin to all kinds of organisms. This article focuses only on the hormetic effects on plants and tries to find out if it really exists and what kind of mechanism is behind the effect by doing a literature study. Looking at different chemicals and elements gives a good insight on the effect on hormesis. By reviewing articles that found hormesis, it can be said it is rather a rule then exception and there still needs to be more research to be done for better understanding how the mechanism is behind hormesis. While it does occur researchers still need to acknowledge and realise its appearance.
