How many plants are there on the planet?
Question Date: 2006-02-04
Answer 1:

Based on the information I have, botanists, scientists who study plants, have found and described more than 350,000 types of plants which include on land and in water ones. Some of these plants are invisible without a microscope and some are so tall that you can not see the top without a telescope.
