Parenchyma Cells

Parenchyma

 

Parenchyma cells in plants are general, unspecialized plant cells. They are the most common type of plant cell. Parenchyma cells participate in photosynthesis and act as a form of storage. The walls of parenchyma cells are thin to allow light to pass through to facilitate photosynthesis. These types of cells can be found across all parts of a plant, like the leaf shown in the picture.
