Definition of hygrochastic movement

Categorized under "General"

Definition as written by Joan:

a type of plant movement resulting from the absorption of water.

If you spray an open strawflower with water, the hygrochastic movement happens fast enough to watch. Within seconds, the phyllaries begin curling upward until the flower forms a tight ball.
