An adventitious root that arises from the stem, penetrates the soil and helps support the stem is known as prop root.
Maize plant is one such example that have prop roots.

Stilt roots are typically they are found in rainforests where soils are poor so roots don't go deep. They grow down from lateral branches, branching in the soil.
