In a girdled plant, when water is supplied to the leaves above the girdle, leaves may remain green

In a girdled plant, when water is supplied to the leaves above the girdle, leaves may remain green for sometime because leaves can synthesise their own food through photosynthesis, they wilt due to non-availability of water and ultimately die as there is no photosynthesis in absence of water.
