- single cotyledon -vascular bundles irregularly distributed in cross section of the stem -parallel veins in the leaves -flower parts in multiples of three. - lack of true secondary growth - in root vascular bundles arranged in a ring - Roots are adventitious (=the radicle aborts and new roots arise adventitiously from nodes in the stem)
dicots: - two cotyledons - Flower parts in multiples of four or five - Major leaf veins reticulated -Stem vascular bundles in a ring -in root vascular bundles arranged in middle of the plant -Roots develop from radicle (=In most dicots the root develops from the lower end of the embryo, from a region known as the radicle. The radicle gives rise to an apical meristem which continues to produce root tissue for much of the plant's life.) -Secondary growth often present
