Hollow dead tubes

Water and minerals transported in an upwards direction

Made of lignin

Very strong so help support the plant

Transports sugar around plant

Made of living cells

Companion cells provide the energy for the tube cells.

The end walls of the tube cells have pores through which food is transported from cell to cell in the form of dissolved sugars
