Roots Part of a plant that attaches it to the ground or to a support, carrying water and nourishment to the rest of the plant
Leaves Organ of a plant responsible for photosynthesis

Stigma Place where pollen germinates after the pollen lands
Phototropism Growth of plants toward a light source
Geotropism Growth of plants in response to gravity
Tropism The response of an organism, especially a plant, to an external stimulus by growth in certain direction
