Q:

What are some examples of monocot seeds?

A:

Monocot seeds include garlic, onion, corn, rice, wheat, asparagus, lilies and orchids. These seeds are classified as monocots because they only have one cotyledon inside of their seeds.

Monocots are also known as monocotyledonous seeds. These seeds often produce plants with narrow and long leaves. The other type of seed species is the dicots, or dicotyledonous seeds.

Dicots have two cotyledons and contain endosperms inside of their seeds. They produce plants with thick, wide leaves. Examples of dicot seeds include tomatoes, potatoes, peppers, cabbage, turnips, apples, plugs, carrots and celery. Dicots produce large leaves so that the leaves can nourish new dicot seeds.

    What is the difference between monocot and dicot stems?

    A:

    Dicot stems have a circular arrangement of vascular tissues, whereas the stems of monocots have vascular-tissue bundles scattered throughout. In monocots the vascular bundles also tend to be toward the outside of the stem. Dicot vascular tissue forms a cylinder near the center of the stem.
