Rhizomes are stems of plants, typically found underground, that have many shoots and roots extending from its nodes. If you cut the rhizomes into pieces, each piece can grow into a new plant. Some examples of rhizomes are ginger, lilies, and asparagus. Rhizomes usually grow horizontally (my ginger’s just awkward).The picture shows ginger, which is also a vegetative crop, meaning that you can take parts of it, plant it into the ground, and have another plant (like potatoes).
