|Water vapor diffuses out of the stomata.
|Water evaporates from Mesophyll cell walls.
|Tension pulls water from the veins into the apoplast of the mesophyll cells.
|Tension pulls the water column upward and outward in the xylem of veins in the leaves.
|Tension pulls the water column upward in the xylem of the root and stem.
|Water molecules form a cohesive column from the roots to the leaves.
|Water moves into the stele by osmosis.
Great post by @odetothetree This transpiration illustration pretty much shows the workings of water evaporating from the leaf , now in Veg with hotter temperatures this happens super aggressively because the plant has to cool itself down, and as a by-product it sucks up more water up, which has nutrients and once again as a by-product it grows fast and thick leaving a great infrastructure for the plant to feed itself in its later weeks feeding the flowers up top.
