  • In transpiration water is lost in the form of water vapour.
  • Transpired water is pure 
  • Transpiration takes place through stomata, cuticle and lenticel.
  • It takes place during day hours.
  •  It is controlled by opening & closing by stomata (Stomatal mechanism).


  • In guttation, water is lost in the form of liquid droplets.
  • The liquid coming out in guttation is not pure but it contains a number of dissolved substances like minerals, salts, sugar etc.
  • Guttation takes place through hydathode.
  • It takes place during the night or in the early morning.
  • It is not controlled since hydathodes always remain open.
