You know that in a flower, the stamen is the male se x organ and the pistil is the female s ex organ. Flowers that contain both stamen and pistil are called bisexual flowers and plants that bear them are called bise xual plants. Some flowers bear either the stamen of the pistil, these flowers are called unisexual flowers. These unisex ual flowers inturn may be borne on the same plant or on different plants, such plants are known as unise xual plants.
bise xual is another name of hermaphrodite
Hope it is clear to you now,
