What contains water and dissolved minerals in the cell?
Root hair cells Plants absorb water from the soil by osmosis. They absorb mineral ions by active transport, against the concentration gradient. Root hair cells are adapted for taking up water and mineral ions by having a large surface area to increase the rate of absorption.
What stores stuff in a cell?
The cytoplasm is the jelly-like substance that fills the cell. It consists of up to 90% water. It also contains dissolved nutrients and waste products. Its main function is to hold together the organelles which make up the cytoplasm.
What contains water nutrients and organelles?
The vacuole contains water the cell needs.
Cell sap is a fluid found in the vacuoles (small cavities) of the living cell; it contains variable amounts of food and waste materials, inorganic salts, and nitrogenous compounds. Phloem, or sieve-tube, sap is the fluid carrying sugar from leaves to other parts of the plant in the summer.
What tissue helps absorb water and minerals?
The large central vacuole is surrounded by its own membrane and contains water and dissolved substances. Its primary role is to maintain pressure against the inside of the cell wall, giving the cell shape and helping to support the plant. The cell wall is located outside the cell membrane.
