Pit membrane is permeable due to permeability of primary cell wall.
Pits are of 2 types (depending upon the shape of the pit chamber.)
(i) Simple pit
Pit chamber has uniform width.
Diameter of lumen remains the same.
Found in vessels, tracheids & sclerenchyma.
(ii) Bordered pit
Pit chamber is flask-shaped.
Diameter of lumen is increases from inner to outer side.
A disc-shaped thickening called Torus is present in the middle of pit chamber on pit membrane.
