Very likely yes because of the hydraulic resistance to water flow in
transpiration. More research is needed to evaluate the quantitative aspects of
the relation between hydraulic resistance and water potential in various plant
species. Water flows trough the plant in xylem vessels. The hydraulic
resistance is dependent on the anatomy of xylem vessels and the length for
water transport that are different in various plants. The higher the hydraulic
resistance a lower water tension is required to enable sufficient transpiration
and stomatal opening for photosynthesis.
