The term monocot refers to the number of cotyledons inside the seed of flowering plants. The cotyledon is the first embryonic leaf or leaves to emerge from the seed after germination. Monocots have one cotyledon and dicots have two cotyledons. The seed of a corn plant has one cotyledon, producing a single first leaf after germination and is therefore a monocot.
