Black and White Friday – Crying Flowers

Plants can also cry. These floral tears even have a name – Gutation (from the Latin word gutta). Flower weeping is a physiological process in which plant roots absorb more water than leaves evaporate. Then the excess water is separated from the leaves in drops.

Tearing is a sign that the relative humidity is high.

Crying in plants can be observed at any time of the year. This is most often at night or early in the morning, during dark, cloudy or quiet times, before rain.

Here are some more interesting facts about gluten:

“When the leaves are weeping, or they are just lining up with a necklace of tiny clear droplets, then they are in the process of gutting. This phenomenon is noticeable both on the leaves of the trees and on the grass.

– Do not confuse guttation with dew, which condenses from the atmosphere on the surface of the plants.

– During the dark hours of the day, there is no tearing process. Then the pores found in the leaves and stems of the plants and working for natural photosynthesis are closed.

– Low light and high humidity are ideal environments for gutting.

Guttation is a common process for many plants in tropical forests. It is most commonly seen in young plants.

– There are quite a few “synoptics” among trees, herbs and ornamental plants that predict the weather as “crying.” They start crying for hours, even two to three days before climate change. One of the plants that predicts weeping weather is mud. Sometimes the following can be observed: there is a 30-40 degree cold outside, and transparent droplets begin to fall from one end of the large emerald mud leaves. The mud is crying, so 1-2 hours the weather will warm up.
