D

Solution

The correct option is A Epiphytes
Most orchids are epiphytes as they have epiphytic roots. Epiphytes are plants that grow anchored to other plants. They are non-parasitic. Epiphytic roots are adventitious roots found in the epiphytes. These roots are present in the air and absorb the moisture and nutrients from the air. Since epiphytic plants do not have roots in the soil, they are called as air plants. Epiphytic roots of orchids grow on the surface of other plants for getting shelter.
Thus, the correct answer is option A.
