Water is lost into the environment through a way known as transpiration. This is a way of evaporation. Water also moves up in plant due to root pressure and capillary action. From the roots, the water is then moved to the xylem, which is the vascular part of a plant that absorbs water and dissolves minerals to all other parts and replaces the water used up during photosynthesis and transpiration.
