Definition of adventitious roots

Categorized under "General"

Definition as written by shakemh:

A common characteristic of climbing ivy, whereby rootlets become so entrenched into nooks and crannies (of bricks, wood siding, or bark) that dislodgement can result in damaging the facade of the structure or tearing away of tree bark.

Plants with this characteristic easily propagate through self or aided layering.
