Take out a balsam plant from the soil and shake it and remove the excess soil. The plant has two parts –one growing above the soil and the other under the soil. The part of a plant that grows above the soil is called the stem or shoot and the part that grows below the soil is called the roots. The branches, leaves, buds, flowers and fruits are parts of the stem.

A plant has roots, stem, branches, leaves, buds, flowers and fruits. Every part of the plant is important and each part of the plant carries out a specific function.
