What is apoplasm.

Dear student, 

Apoplast is a system of adjacent cell walls that are continuous , except at the casparian strips of the endodermis. 
The apoplast pathway involves the movement of water through the adjacent cell walls of the epidermis and cortex with out entering the cytoplasm. The movement of water is restricted at the casparian strips of the root endodermis.

Within a plant, the apoplast is the space outside the plasma membrane within which material can diffuse freely. It is interrupted by the Casparian strip in roots, by air spaces between plant cells and by the plant cuticle.
