    If I don’t forget it (which I quite often do) I always take some images of the roots of my species plants whenever I move or divide them. Given that I often loose them afterwards you might say it’s for ‘nostalgic’ reasons mostly. The roots are an important determination characteristic when trying to classify species plants, but you don’t often see images of it. I’ve previously posted images of roots from P. sterniana, P. wittmanniana, P. mascula ssp bodurii, P. velebitensis and P. morisii. Here now are some images of P. archibaldii (first image), P. peregrina (second one) and P. anomala. The main difference is between ‘carrot shaped’ roots on the one hand and ‘tuberous’ ones on the other. P. peregrina has those tuberous roots, they are attached to the crown by a rather thin root connection. In my experience the tuberous roots are the most difficult ones to divide, carrot shaped ones are always more productive in this respect. On the other hand the species with tuberous roots are also the ones that tend to give adventitious shoots, so that can be some consolation ūüėČ
