In addition, cold weather may also alter plant growth after several days of abnormally low temperatures. And below 32° F, the water held in the plant 's cells freezes. The ice crystals which form puncture the cells ' membranes and after the ice crystals melt, the cells contents leak, thus killing the cell.
