What are the methods used by plants to get rid of excretory products?


Plants get rid of the waste product in the following manner:

  • Gaseous wastes, like CO 2 and O 2 , are expelled from the stomata
  • Water vapour from the leaves through transpiration
  • Solid wastes , stored in the plant body through shedding of leaves, peeling of bark, falling of fruits
  • Gums and Resins excreted from the lenticels in the bark

Some wastes are excreted by the plant in the soil around them
