    The chloroplasts move due to the directed flow of cytosol. This process is called cyclosis, or cytoplasmic streaming. Chloroplasts can be moved around with the stream, possibly to a position of optimum light absorption for photosynthesis. The rate of motion is usually affected by light exposure, temperature, and pH levels.
