How does water transport through plants?

As scientists this week, we have been investigating how water is transported up the stem. We have been investigating using celery and coloured water to observe what happens when water is transported through the plant! We observe them at three different points and noticed that after a day the leaves and stem started to change colour. Underneath the celery we could see the dark circles, we identified these as the xylem which are tiny tubes the water travels through to reach the leaves.
