You need to elaborate on your question.

Going from this, you'd say that a plant carries out mitosis. It's how it grows.

Surely you'd be more suited to be looking at transpiration, osmosis etc .I don't think mitosis has much to do with the movement of water.

Plants contain meristems which is an undifferentiated cells which can divide into specialised cells and are found at the root tip and shoot tip of a plant.

I THINK that because mitosis takes place at the root tip and also the movement of water through the plant starts at the root tip via osmosis etc.
