How to use "Monoicous" in context?
A Monoicous plant is a plant that is only able to photosynthesize with the aid of light. Monoicous plants are typically much smaller than dicotic plants, which are capable of photosynthesis with the aid of both light and water. Monoicous plants are often less common in nature than dicotic plants, and they are not well-suited to climates that are very dry. Monoicous plants are also much more susceptible to disease and pests than dicotic plants.
