Tuber- Storage organ for some plants (Aponogeton) that supplies nutrients during their dormant periods.

Dormant Periods- Some plants observe it to adjust to native (dry)seasonal fluctuations.

Internode- portion of the stem axis between two nodes.

Demineralization- extraction of dissolved salts in the water byway of ion exchange or RO.
