    N. rowanae grows in the same sort of way, with a thick woody root system. It helps it survive dry seasons and bush fires which occur in its habitat. It also has some growth patterns that facilitate this.

    Thank you,Hamish! I was wondering if rowanae have a rhizome like root system because, according to Rod Kruger, there is a dry season in their habitat. The same applies for N. sp. 'Viking'.
