If plants have poorly developed roots, or as cut flowers, no roots, they are not able to take up enough water and nutrients and therefore wilt. Even with an adequate water supply after a while they start to wilt. Without sufficiently developed roots, or no roots, the plant is not able to take up sufficiently water and nutrients. The main tasks of roots are the absorption of water, the absorption of inorganic nutrients and the anchoring of the plant in the ground.
