New leaves are tbrtned on the older leaves. Tendril climbers: These plants develop long slender tendrils for climbing up in the support. Such ‘rhizomes are called sobole rhizomes. Most of the undervound steins have a large amount of stored food in the form starch. Each bud form new corm. . Example: rose, The stem which grows above the ground in the exposed air is called, In this case, stem is very reduced and present in the form of green structure above the thick roots.

Phylloclades and cladodes are used to store a large amount of water. Biennials and Perennials. Nodes give off adventitious roots. Examples include fractures, arthritis, and tendinitis. enlarge till of the stalk of flower is called thalamus. T he arc sensitise to contact. It is found in wood sorrel (Oxalis). They have large amount of storage food. These are: 1.Herb: An annual green small sized plant is called herb. Straight and rounded stem is called cylindrical. Such leases like steins are called phylloclade and cladode. These stems are so–small, that the leaves appear to be arised from root directly. . Or they may have broad basal portion with upper green part die away. The tendril may be modified stem or leaves. Solid: If stem is not hollow at internodes then it is called solid: Jointed: The stems swollen at internodes are called jointed. Example: bamboo. In potato plant, several slender axillan branches arise from the basal under ground portion of the stem. Example: Etiphorbia. (a) Pulvinate leaf base : In members of leguminosae the leaf is swollen. In banana, sheathing of many leafs jointly makes a stem like structure known as false stem (pseudostem). Multi-colored buds with many scales. (d) Sympodial rhizome: In this case, the rhizomes are arranged in cymose pattern. Example: Ocimum (y;y) An apical bud is present in the centre of disc.
