In general, a plant or vegetable is an autotrophic living organism composed of a root system (roots), a stem and a leaf system. The root system has the task of anchoring the plant to the soil and absorbing from it the nutrients (minerals and water) necessary for the vital processes of the plant itself. The stem has the task of supporting the foliar apparatus, allowing vertical development and transporting the sap. The foliar apparatus, on the other hand, has the task of capturing the sunlight necessary for photosynthesis and carrying out gaseous exchanges.
