Dicotyledon:
1. Have two cotyledons (seed leaves) in their seeds.
2. Have branching veins in their leaves.
3. Have a taproot system with a main root and smaller lateral roots.
4. Have flower parts in multiples of four or five.
5. Have secondary growth, meaning they can grow thicker over time.
6. Examples include roses, sunflowers, and oak trees.

Monocotyledon:
1. Have one cotyledon in their seeds.
2. Have parallel veins in their leaves.
3. Have a fibrous root system with many thin roots of similar size.
4. Have flower parts in multiples of three.
5. Do not have secondary growth, so they do not grow thicker over time.
6. Examples include grasses, lilies, and palms.
