Looking through the microscope, I will check if the following features are observed.
• Vascular bundles in the dicot stem are arranged in a ring whereas in monocot stem vascular bundles are scattered throughout the ground tissue.
• Based on the arrangement of vascular bundles, it can be ascertained whether the young stem is dicot or monocot.
• In addition to the indistinguishable ground tissue, sclerenchymatous hypodermis, spherical or egg-shaped vascular bundles with Y-shaped xylem are other distinguishing characteristics of monocot stem.
