Trip through a plant's roots.

Post by larock01 » Sat Apr 15, 2006 11:27 pm

What is the order in which water and minerals pass on their way up from a plant's roots:

I kind of know what they will pass through but I am unsure on the order. Here are the choices I have come down to:
- Root hair, endodermis (Casparian strip), epidermis, cortex, stele
- Root hair, cortex, epidermis, endodermis (Casparian strip), stele
- Root hair, stele, cortex, endodermis (Casparian strip), epidermis
- Root hair, epidermis, stele, cortex, endodermis (Casparian strip)
- Root hair, epidermis, cortex, endodermis (Casparian strip), stele

Thanks in advance for your much needed help.
