Which are plant tissues responsible for the supporting of the plant?

The plant supporting tissues are the sclerenchyma and the collenchyma.

The collenchyma is made of elongated and living cells that accumulate pectin and cellulose in some regions of the cell wall making them unequally thick and thus providing flexibility.

The sclerenchyma is made mainly of dead cells killed by lignin deposition (lignin is an impermeable biopolymer) forming elongated, impermeable fibers and rigid. The sclerenchyma is a plant tissue widely used in the textile industry.
