how do plants excrete?

Plants use a variety of techniques to remove waste materials. Oxygen, a by-product of photosynthesis is removed through stomata. The excess water absorbed from roots is also lost through stomata via transpiration. Cell vacuoles, gum, resin etc. are stored in old xylem tissues. Waste products may be stored in leaves that fall. Plant roots also sometimes excrete wastes materials.

 plants excrete by various processes

  • excrete CO2 and O2  through respiration by stomata.
  • excrete extra water through transpiration
  • some other wastes of the plant are excreted through fallling of dry leaves

Excretion is the process by which waste products of metabolism and other non-useful materials are eliminated from an organism. This is in contrast with secretion, where the substance may have specific tasks after leaving the cell. Excretion is an essential process in all forms of life.

In single-celled organisms, waste products are discharged directly through the surface of the cell. Multicellular organisms utilize more complex excretory methods. Higher plants eliminate gases through the stomata, or pores, on the surface of leaves. Animals have special excretory organs.

you are wrong wait ! it's not the matter of excetion.

Hope this helps,

Thumps up plzzzzzzz!!!!!!!!

In plants, breakdown of substances is much slower than in animals. Hence accumulation of waste is much slower and there are no special organs of excretion. Green plants in darkness or plants that do not contain chlorophyll produce carbon dioxide and water as respiratory waste products. Carbon dioxide released during respiration gets utilized during photosynthesis.

Oxygen itself can be thought of as a waste product generated during photosynthesis. Plants can get rid of excess water by transpiration.

Waste products may be stored in leaves that fall off. Other waste materials that are exuded by some plants — resins, saps, latexes, etc. are forced from the interior of the plant by hydrostatic pressures inside the plant and by absorptive forces of plant cells. Plants also excrete some waste substances into the soil around them.

plants do not excrete the process of excretion is known as transpiration. Hope it helps!!!
