[tlhIngan Hol] How would you express "root of a tree" ?

Or even *{wutlh bartIq} an “underground branch”?

The only plant parts I know of are:

Qechjem’a’         trunk (of tree)
bartIq                   branch (of tree)
por                        leaf (of plant)
naH                       fruit, vegetable
vIychorgh            juice, sap of a plant


From: mayqel qunen'oS
I marrion-webstered "root", and I found:

"the part of a plant that grows underground, gets water from the ground, and holds the plant in place"

So perhaps one could say:

{wutlh Sor 'ay'mey}
the underground parts of the tree
