following well-known relationship determines
water potential within plants and also applies
to plant tissues and the soil.
simply, water moves through plant cells
due to a "differential" in "pressure gradients,"
which pulls water through a plant.
This graph illustrates those greatly differing
pressures which are established in science
as "differential permeability."
differential permeability allows water to
pass readily through a plant's membranes.
"diffusion" of water across these permeable
membranes from a region of higher potential
to one of lower potential is the method
in which WaterWorks Crystals® provides water
through "Osmotic Potential."
diffuses into a cell by osmosis until the
cell becomes swollen, or turgid, and
the distended walls of the cell exert pressure
on the cell contents to move to an area
of lower pressure along the gradient within
