When a substance absorbs water and swells up but does not dissolve in it, this process is called imbibition.

The uptake of water by imbibition is especially important during germination of seeds. The volume of dry seed is greatly increased by imbibition, as a result the seed coat ruptures and makes the germination of seed effective.
