Expert Answer:

Some aerial parts of plants possess several buds, sufficient water, and stored food. These parts can form new plants when detached and planted. A piece of stem containing one or more nodes having buds is cut and planted in the soil. Soon the buds sprout and for aerial shoots and adventitious roots.
 
The various aerial modifications are stem tendrils, thorns, phylloclades, cladodes, and bulbils.
