Plants reproduce by various methods. These methods can be divided into two types: (i) asexual reproduction and (ii) sexual reproduction.
    In asexual reproduction, the new individual is produced by a single parent. Seeds are not produced and there is no union of gametes (sex cells). The new individual is identical to the parent.
   In sexual reproduction, fusion of two types of gametes takes place. Two parents take part in the formation of gametes and new individuars are produced from these. The new individual is not identical to either of the parents. It has features of both the                 parents.
