Wilting potted plant. This is a Primula plant. The plant is wilting due to a lack of watering. The internal structure of a plant depends on water pressure to maintain rigidity, and a lack of water causes plants to shrivel and collapse, as seen here, in a process called wilting. For this plant in a healthy state, see image C011/4558.
