Excerpt from Nepenthaceae: Mit 95 Einzelbildern in 19 Figuren

The annual growths of fine fibrous roots, in about 15 Species studied, are greenish yellow round the growing apex, but soon they assume a black-brown color. They are closely beset with brown absorptive root hairs, all of which remain functional throughout the season. Subsequent annual development results in the production of a copiously branched root system. Some authors have stated that average root-develop ment in Nepenthes is comparatively poor and feeble. In healthy well grown plants this is not so. The active absorptive root-hair system is also exceptionally rich and abundant. By subsequent formation of a root cambium and associated tissue, the brown epidermal layer and subjacent cortex become split and ultimately shed in older roots. These then assume a yellow or flesh color that may be retained for years, but finally they become yellow - brown.
