Plants*concentrate solutes in their root cells by active transport, and water enters the roots by*osmosis.Osmosis*is also responsible for controlling the movement of guard cells.*Osmosis*can be demonstrated when potato slices are added to a high salt solution.

When the liquid molecules moves from a higher to a lower concentration via partially permeable membrane, it is called osmosis. The best example of osmosis is plants. Plants absorb water from the soil and grow. It also happens in the skin of the humans.
