A rhizome was a plant stem usually found underground, though it could also grow perpendicular to gravity or even produce shoots that grew upwards.

While on a survey mission to Surata IV in 2365, a rhizomatic plant stung William T. Riker on the leg, infecting him with a microorganism. (TNG: "Shades of Gray")
