In the growth per plant organ, first the amount of product and building blocks are calculated, based on the share of available glucode in the metabolic pool, as if no limitations exist. Next, the most limiting building block reduces the amount of glucose actually used for growth. After this the building blocks are transfered from the supplier (Metabolic Pool) to the organ's states.
Finally, the water produced during growth is returned to the supplier.
