Fun Fact about Plants

Did you know plants had placentas? I sure didn’t. These green little beings are coming way closer to us vertebrates then I expected! Plant placentas provide nutrition to the seed (or ovule), which is found inside the ovary, or carpel. The placenta is connected to the seed through a short filament, very much like an umbilical cord. Who would have thunk?

The question is, do seeds have bellybuttons?
