What Happens When You Put Celery in Saltwater?

Answer

When celery is put into saltwater, it will wilt. This is because you are putting cells with freshwater in a solution with salt in it. Salt does not travel through the plant's cell wall, but water does. Things tend towards an equilibrium, so the water will travel out of the cells until there is an equal concentration of salt in and out of the cells. But when the water leaves, the cells deflate. Hence, 'wilting'.

Osmosis. The celery stalk will try to equalize internal salt content with the salt water. It will do this first by transporting fresh water from inside itself to the salt water.
