What is the function of a stem

Dear student,
Please find below the answer:

Functions of stem:
  • Transport of water and food from place to place within the plant with the help of xylem and phloem.
  • Provides protection and mechanical support to the upper portions of the plant.
  • Meristematic tissue present within the stem helps in the production of new living tissue.  
Hope this clears your doubt.
