Phloem cells are living vascular cells that carries sugar and organic substances throughout a plant.
tissues in plants that conduct foods made in the leaves to all other parts of the plant. Phloem is composed of various specialized cells called sieve tubes, companion cells, phloem fibers, and phloem parenchyma cells.
xylem & phloem
Because phloem cells are responsible to transport prepared food material in different plant parts judiciously.
Phloem cells transport glucose in a plant
Phloem is the type of cell that delivers nutrients throughout a plant. Inside phloem cells are specialized cells called sieves that help transport these nutrients.

B. Sugar made in the leaf is carried to the roots by cells in the phloem.
Most cells in a plant, but not all. Xylem and phloem cells do not contain DNA (xylem because it is dead at maturity, phloem because the nucleus is gone at maturity)

Through the phloem
Sugar is transported in the soluble formthrough out the plant by phloem cells
In general downwards
phloem. while xylem cells have no chloroplasts either they are dead cells.
Cellulose in living plant cells and Lignified cellulose in non-living plant cells (As in heartwood and outer bark)Phloem
Phloem is made of sieve tubes, companion cells and phloem parenchyma. These are specialized cells to transport nutrients from leaves to other area of the plant.
The plant would definitely die if it's phloem cells were not functioning properly. This is because it would not be able to transfer the products of photosynthesis down the stem.
