How to use "Root out" in context?

The word "root" is derived from the Proto-Germanic word "ruthen" or "ruten", meaning "anchor". In botany, rooting is the growing of new roots from a plant or tree. When a plant is stakes, transplanted, or dug from a container, some of the Underground organs (roots) may break away from the main plant and get carried away with the plant body. Rooting either allows a plant to access water and nutrients otherwise unavailable to the plant, or it may be a first step in hinging the plant to its new location.
