do leaves store water



  1. 0 Votes

    Succulent plants can store water in their leaves.  Aloe, Agave, and Cacti all are considered succulents. Many of these are desert plants because succulent plants must be able to absorb quite a bit of water in a short time.

    Yes. The amount of water stored depends on climate, surface area of the leaf and recent weather. The way water content is measured is either through gravimetric water content (mass of water per unit of fresh leaf mass) or equivalent water thickness (volume of water per unit of leaf area).

    Yes, there are leaves that can store water. A lot of them are desert plants, like mcoffey mentioned. It’s a survival mechanism to make sure that the plant has enough water to withstand drought conditions.
