Best Answer

Plants wilt due to a loss of turgor pressure in a condition called plasmolysis. This occurs when plants are placed in a hypertonic solution, meaning the concentration of water outside the cell is greater than the concentration inside the cell. This causes water to move out of the cell therefore causing a lack of turgor pressure, causing the plant to wilt.
