How to use "Monocot family" in context?
The monocot family is a group of flowering plants composed of only one kind of leaf, flower, and seed. Monocots are distinguished from dicots, which include plants with two kinds of leaf, two kinds of flower, and two kinds of seed. Monocots tend to have a single vascular bundle, or main bundle of upward-growing cells in the stem, while dicots have multiple bundles. This difference in structure makes monocots more easily identified by microscopy.
The monocots include the cacti, or the plants in the subfamily Cactoideae.
