A dicot root is basically a taproot which is a single thick root with smaller lateral branches. Din dicot root, the vascular bundles are present in the middle of the root and around the vascular cambium. Xylem and phloem are these vascular bundles that play some important roles. Xylem absorbs and carries the water from the roots to the leaves of the plant, while phloem, on the other hand, carries organic compounds, sugar, and other substances from leaves to the root and stem. In the dicot root, the xylem and phloem are separated by vascular cambium, which is the secondary growth of the dicot root.
