Ginger is an example of rhizome (e.g., prostrate stem creeping horizontally under soil surface). It has no effect of gravity. Rhizome of ginger contains nodes, internodes and scaly leaves. Buds are emerges from axils of scaly leaves. Response to light by plants is known as phototropism. In this sense, shoot shows positive phototropism and root shows negative phototropism.
