Types of roots

Arieal roots are roots that never touch the ground. They absorb water from rain and air rather than soil. Fibrous roots are thin, branching roots that do not grow deep into the ground, but often cover a very wide area. Taproots have a single, main stalk like root that grows deep into the ground. Prop roots usually grow at the bottom of a plant’s stem. They prop up and support the plant.
