Alright so these are vocabulary terms I have to learn for my final.
Stolon- an above ground horizontal stem
Rhizome- a below ground horizontal stem
Trendil- a twining stem
Node- the swollen portion of a stem associated with buds
Internode- the portion of the stem between the nodes
Lenticel- spongy area in the cork surfaces of stems
Terminal bud- bud found at the end of a branch or stem
Lateral bud- a bud found along the side of a branch or stem
Woooo. I have got to start using these terms more when referring to things so that I sound better educated.
