Monocotyledons are plants whose seedlings produce only one seed-leaf (cotyledon), characterised by the absence of consecutive layers of wood in the stem (endogenous growth). Monocotyledons are recognised by the veins of the leaves, which are generally straight, and by the composition of their flowers which are generally in multiples of three. (Examples: grasses, lilies, orchids, palm trees, etc.)
