Explain briefly whydo not root hairs become flaccid when fertilisers are added to the moist soil around them?
The root hairs become flaccid when fertilisers are added to the moist soil around them because fertilisers with moist soil become hypertonic which causes plasmolysis in the cells of the root hair. The turgidity is lost and the cell becomes flaccid.
