Minerals absorbed by the roots travel up the xylem. How do they reach the parts where they are needed most? Do all the parts of the plant get the same amount of the minerals?
Minerals are taken by the roots from the soil and are transported to various parts of the plants wherever needed via the xylem vessels. The mineral requirement is not the
same for all plants and neither for all plant parts so all the parts of the plants do not get the same amount of minerals.
