"Xylem is the water transporting tissue in plants. One odd feature about xylem is its cells die when they reach maturity. Xylem is like a long series of soda straws linked end-to-end. There are two types of xylem cells that conduct water: tracheids and vessels. Vessels are better at transporting water than tracheids because they are wider and have less obstructions. "
