Most of the water flow in the ocurr via the apoplast pathway since, the cortical cells are loosly packed and hence offer no resistance to water movement, which is through mass flow. This mass flow of water occurs due to adhesive and cohesive properties of water occurs due to adhesive and cohesive properties of water.
However, symplast pathway is also involved in the movement of water molecules within the root (i.e, via andodermis to xylem).
