  • Turgor pressure is not really the result of any particular organelle. It is a result of both the selecive permeability of the cell wall and membrane of plant cells and the difference in solute concentration across them. Plant cells are packed with large and medium sized organic as well as inorganic molecules while the surrounding liquid medium has relatively few of them. Water then flows from outside the molecule from the 'wetter' side (side with more water and fewer solute molecules) to the 'drier' side (the side with les water and more solut molecules). This jam packs the cell with water and creates turgor pressure. The cell wall and plasma membrane are responsible for turgor but are not organelles.
