We are studying plants in science. A child asked me how the bulbs of a daffodil 
split into many bulbs and thus claimed that the roots of a plant could aid in 
reproduction. I was unable to correct him or answer him as I do not really 
understand. Are the roots the same as the bulb? Do they split and 
thus "reproduce"? Thank you.
