This programming makes the plant seek out nutrients in the soil, or it wouldn't survive. Evolution would have you accept that.somehow.natural selection was involved in the process. But the process is way to advanced for the antiquated explanation the natural selection tenet of evolution provides.

Roots have a definite structure and a planned purpose. Look at one under magnification. At the tip of a root is a root cap, which are cells that have ceased to grow. This root cap protects the meristem, which is still growing by dividing.(cells multiply by dividing).its cellular structure used to increase the length of the root fibres pushing the cap further into the ground.

Within this area of fibre growth, root 'hairs' are generated and emerge to go into the soil, expanding the plant's ability to absorb water and other nutrients. These hairs are constantly being replenished as they become abraded.

Bob Gibbons, botanist, explains in his fine book,.The Secret Life of Flowers, that around the roots and root hairs of many plants, expecially the orchids, heathers and some forest trees, there is a cob web like net of fungal strands forming a special relationship with the plant. Both benefit from the relationship.

"It's almost as if the fungus tries to invade the roots but is only partially successful; the attack is contained and the roots absorb water and minerals salts from the fungi, while they in turn derive some nourishment from the roots", says Bob.

There are different types of root systems dependent upon conditions the plant is growing under. Plants can have tap roots.(difficult to pull up, like carrots, radishes, beets, etc., where nutrients are stored in them and we eat them).and fibruous root systems and adventitious root systems. Fibrous systems can branch out everywhere. A four month old rye plant, for example, can have over 14 million roots covering a surface area of some 2,500 square feet.(232 square meters). In addition to this, 14 billion of its root hairs can extend further by another 4,300 square feet. And that's one plant! It truly is an amazing transport system.

Adventitious root systems involve a root producing additional roots from its stem. This occurs if the main root is waterlogged, as Bob points out; or, as in the case of ivy, where the stem needs to adhere to walls or trees.

Bob points out in his book that one plant of common couch grass.(also called quack grass).about 2 years old can have a root length of over ??, ok, you guess first. How many feet, yards.(or meters or miles or kilometers).is its root length at this time? 

Whadda ya think? 8-10 inches, 12-14 inches, 16-20 inches, 1 foot, 2 feet, 5 feet, 1000 feet? 2000 feet? a mile? 5 miles? 25 miles? 50 miles? More? Take a guess! Whadda ya think? 
    Highlight from bracket to bracket to get the answer
.(300 miles {483 kilometers} amazing!).

In soft damp soil the roots are tightly compacted, not needing to spread out in search of needed nutrients. From where came the programming that the plant is able to sense its need to either be tightly compacted or to spread out, if not from the intelligence that designed it?

Also, some of a plant's cells are directed to become part of the plant's rigid structure. Others carry nutrients throughout the plant as needed by passing nutrients from cell to cell.

To learn more about.how complex is this.manufacturing and distribution centre.(stems, leaf structure, energy production, transpiration, a plant's hormones and its growth, mitosis, seed dormancy to germination to mature plant, life cycle variance {evergreens, etc.}, reproduction {vegetative and sexual} and varying pollenation timing mechanisms, varying beautiful scents, geographical preferences, photosynthesis.{and how some plants do not need it, like the parasitic dodder}.and how air enters leaves and how all plants have a commonality yet exhibit almost infinite variation in design).get the book!

A plant seed contains all the information it needs in the chromosomes, to tell it what particular kind of plant it is and how it should behave, look, etc. Who but Creator-God could have put the information in the seed?

The programming by the Creator determines how the plant's final form occurs. The programming involves what defines which cells produce leaves, etc. and resolves how the flowers become red, yellow, multi colored, etc. In addition, plant systems are designed in such a way to accommodate insect pollination. All these intricate processes work together beautifully, flawlessly. These are mysteries deeply buried within each particular plant's encoding that provide only the explanation of intelligent design vy the Creator-God to be as they are.

Cellular structure:.Man builds rigid structures and creates rigid laws. Nature builds flexibility with ranges of variance generously allowed and where severely.eccentric.alterations are easily corrected. 

Eccentric alterations include bending in the wind of a tree's trunk and branches and all the way to the nano world within the cell. Indeed, where rigid structures cannot exist or cellular functioning would be brought to a halt, this Great Being designed the flexibility within molecular structures where cells are able to flex, 'breathing' in the process and where the oxygen.molecules are held deep by myoglobin.(a deep red protein).in a pocket deep within it. 

For the oxygen to enter, the molecule must flex or 'breath', a transitory process that forms channels that allow passage. Proteins use a carefully designed change of shape to regulate their action.
