Parts of a plant- Roots and Stem


A plant's roots sit below the soil and the stem grows above it.


The roots of a plant take up water and nutrients from the soil. They also anchor the plant to the ground and keep it steady.


The stem carries water and nutrients to different parts of the plant. It also provides support and keeps the plant standing upright.
