40 Plants can acclimate by using tropisms to link the direction of growth to 41 environmental conditions. Hydrotropism allows roots to forage for water, a process 42 known to depend on abscisic acid (ABA) but whose molecular and cellular basis 43 remains unclear. Here, we show that hydrotropism still occurs in roots after laser 44 ablation removed the meristem and root cap. Additionally, targeted expression 45 studies reveal that hydrotropism depends on the ABA signalling kinase, SnRK2.2, and

Conversely, hydrotropism, but not gravitropism, is inhibited by preventing 48 differential cell-length increases in the cortex, but not in other cell types. We conclude 49 that root tropic responses to gravity and water are driven by distinct tissue-based 50 mechanisms. In addition, unlike its role in root gravitropism, the elongation zone 51 performs a dual function during a hydrotropic response, both sensing a water 52 potential gradient and subsequently undergoing differential growth. 53
