What happens if you put a potato in water?
Water will move from an area of less salt to more salt (more water to less water), and so when the potato is placed in the salt water, all the water that is inside the potato (yes, plants have a lot of water inside of them, that's what gives a plant it's structure) moves out by osmosis.
