Imbibition is an important natural phenomenon that is taking place during the different phases of plant development. Some of the important features are:

  1. The imbibition occurs during the seed germination. The seed imbibes water and swells up resulting rupturing of the seed coat in the germination of the seed.
  2. The water molecules move along the xylem walls due to the force of imbibition.
