Mosses were the first plants found on land. Like all other plants, they require water in order to survive, and are often found in very moist places. How do plants, like this moss, get the water needed to survive? Moss uses xylem to absorb and transport water. Moss absorbs water directly into its cells. Moss uses vascular tissue to absorb and transport water. Moss absorbs water with roots.

QuestionCoveBot:

Since Moss is non-vascular, they lack the conductive tissue most plants have to absorb water. - This eliminates A and C Moss does not have roots. - This eliminates D What you have left is B The water is absorbed by osmosis. "Mosses and liverworts are small, primitive, non-vascular plants. They lack the conductive tissue most plants use to transport water and nutrients. Instead, moisture is absorbed directly into cells by osmosis." - Source: https://www.nps.gov/arch/learn/nature/mossesandliverworts.htm#:~:text=Mosses%20and%20liverworts%20are%20small,directly%20into%20cells%20by%20osmosis.
