Root Sprouts - Root sprouts come from meristematic points in roots. Roots do not grow from buds, they grow from meristematic points. So roots do not have buds and they do not have flares or branch collars for starters.
But, SHIGO reports in SHIGO 2002 CD's a mycorrhiza bud or budding. The picture is 1000x and the little round object forming on the end of the mycorrhiza is referred to as budding. I believe this forms another mycorrhiza on this mycorrhiza and this is referred to a mycorrhiza stacking or chain
