Plants were living organisms belonging to the biological kingdom Plantae. They include familiar organisms such as trees, herbs, bushes, grasses, vines, ferns, mosses, and green algae. About 350,000 species of plants were estimated to exist on Earth alone.

Most planets colonized by humanity either had their own plant life or had terran plants brought there.
