If a plant has leaves with reticulate venation, then what kind of roots does it have?

Plants with reticulate venation in their leaves are likely to have taproots. For example, a carrot or a rose plant has leaves with reticulate venation, and its roots are called taproots.

How to find whether a plant has taproot or fibrous roots?

We can determine whether a plant has taproot or fibrous roots by looking at its leaves’ impression on a sheet of paper. If the leaf has parallel venation, it is likely to have fibrous root, but if the leaf has reticulate venation, the plant will have a taproot. Leaves of tulsi, coriander and china rose to have reticulate venation. A taproot has a main root, and the smaller roots are called lateral roots. Fibrous roots do not have any main root, and all the roots seem similar.
