Define Wilting

Wilting is the loss of turgidity of leaves and other soft aerial parts causing drooping, folding and rolling. Wilting is of three types:

  1. Temporary wilting – It is the temporary drooping down of leaves and young shoots due to the loss of turgidity during noon. It is verywell revised simply after the pace of transpiration diminishes joined by the renewal of water around root hairs.
  2. Incipient wilting – Partial and temporary loss of turgor in a plant that occurs in the presence of adequate soil moisture and is associated with excessive water loss through transpiration.
  3. Permanent wilting –It is that state in the loss of turgidity of leaves when they do not regain their turgidity even when being placed in a suitable atmosphere
