Turgid is a term used for a plant when its intakes excess water. In biology, the study of cells or tissues of a plant that gets swollen by absorbing water is known as ‘Turgidity.’ In this, the cell membranes of a plant push against the wall of cells and result in increased size. 

Turgid occurs in a plant cell because of Osmosis in which the liquid flows towards the higher concentration. Similarly, when this moment takes place in plants it is known as ‘Turgidity.’ 

  • When a plant cell undergoes a lack of water and loses all the water, it is known as ‘Plasmolyzed.’ It is the opposite of ‘Turgidity.’ 
  • The pressure created by the uptake of water on cells walls is known as ‘Turgid Pressure.’
