is this correct


is there cellulose fibres in a cell wall and water moves between these fibres

secondly I don't understand why water moves through the cell walls into the xylem.

in my book it says due to hydrostatic pressure. water moves in the cell walls due to hydrostatic pressure. is the reasoning to this the same as the reasoning to water moving in a hose?

lastly at the end of a plant cell wall how does water move to the next cell wall ? are the cell walls connected?

thank you

1) The cell wall is very absorbent so the water can simply diffuse through it, as well as pass between spaces in between
2) Your hose theory is correct
3) Plant cells have plasmodesmata which are essentially gaps between the cell walls of two plant cells, connecting them.
