    A fibrous root has many small roots (Figure 2). Each of the roots have lateral roots branching off of them also. Just like taproots, fibrous roots have root hairs too. Fibrous roots tend to not go as deep into the soil as apposed to taproots which go very deep. Fibrous roots occur in angiosperms.

    The transport of substances through the phloem is called translocation. Phloem tubes are not hollow so the substances have to move between living cells. Sugar cells can move quickly enough to supply energy to cells throughout the plant.

    passive transport.
    Interesting Facts!
    The concentration of sucrose inside the phloem cells is up to 100 times greater than that outside. "This attracts water into the cells and increases the hydrostatic pressure of the leaf phloem," -ARS plant physiologist Daniel R. Bush
