      How does water move through a flowering plant, from the roots to leaving the plant, and what mechanisms are involved?

      How come you don’t know the answer? Look into any plant physiology book. Look for xylem transport.

      Mainly via the xylem. Mechanisms include: transpiration and capillary action.

      Water and minerals from the soil to the plants through the epidermis of roots,cross the root cortex,and pass into the vascular cylinder.From there xylem sap,the water and dissolved minerals in the xylem,is transported through long distances by bulk flow to the veins that branch throughout each leaf.
