Aerial Roots

Aerial roots are roots that grow on the above-ground parts of a plant. Aerial roots on woody vines function as anchors, affixing the plant to supporting structures such as trellises, rocks and walls.

Some types of aerial roots also absorb moisture and nutrients, just like underground roots. Plants that live in marshes and bogs have underground roots, but they can’t absorb gasses from the air. These plants produce above ground “breathing roots” to help them with air exchange.
