Botanical term (monoecious) for plants that carry both male and female sexual organs, so to speak "on the same house" (plant). These can occur separately on a plant, but also as a common bisexual organ in the form of a hermaphrodite flower, as is usually the case with the cultivated vine. In contrast, there are also dioecious or unisexual plants. See also under flower, vine systematics and grapevine.
