  • Moving Water Between Cells
    • Apoplast Pathway
      • Water moves through water-filled spaces between cellulose molecules
        • Water does not pass through any plasma membranes
    • Symplast Pathway
      • Water enters the cell cytoplasm through the plasma membrane
        • It can pass through the plasmodesmata from one cell to the next
    • Vacuolar Pathway
      • Water enters the cell cytoplasm through the plasma membrane
        • It is not confined to the cytoplasm and is able to pass through vacuoles too
          • It can pass through the plasmodesmata from one cell to the next
