A cell in it’s fully expanded condition is said to be Turgid.

Turgidity is the state of a cell in which the cell wall is fully expanded due to the absorption of water up to last limit. Turgid is when there is a lot of water in the cell, sort of making a hydrostatic skeleton, because plants don’t have bones to keep them stiff, flaccid is when water has left the cells and the plant goes all droopy.
