Transpiration

(A Verb)
In Botany,  the passage of water through a plant from the roots through the vascular system to the atmosphere.

In plain English:

Its the process by which plants use water to survive. Plants need more water per capita than we do! It is always being moved from roots to leaves and being let out to the atmosphere via the leaves.  Water is to a plant, like blood is to us!

Big word, important process, easy to understand!

Have a great day! Peg

Thank you!!  I appreciate that!  Hugs, Peg  Flower Smiley
