The absorbed water is then transported through the roots to the rest of the plant where it is used for different purposes:It is a reactant used in photosynthesis,It supports leaves and shoots by keeping the cells rigid, It cools the leaves by evaporation, and It transports dissolved minerals around the plant.
Hey want to hear about what I learned in school today?
Imagine you are outside... there are so many plants around you and you wonder, how do they get the hydration that they need to live?
Well, Water is absorbed through the root hairs on the plant that are in contact with the soil. Fun fact root hairs contain vacuoles filled with sap!
Wow! That's not as boring as i thought it would be! Plant absorption is actually kind of cool.
I'm not sure if you people from the 1600s know, but you have to pay for that meal.
