Transplanted seedlings often fail to grow because most of the root hairs are lost during transplantation. Root hairs, which are responsible for absorbing water and nutrients from the soil, are delicate structures that can be damaged or lost when the seedlings are uprooted and replanted. This loss of root hairs reduces the plant's ability to take in essential resources, leading to transplant shock and hindered growth. Proper handling and care during transplantation are important to minimize root hair loss and promote the successful establishment of transplanted seedlings.
