The nucleus of an elodea cell is suspended in the cytoplasm within the cell wall. When the plant cell is well hydrated, the central vacuole swells with water and pushes the nucleus and chloroplasts toward the outer edge of the cell. In a poorly hydrated cell, the nucleus may be located any where within the cell.
