Because there are many different kinds of plants they grow in many different places. The place that a plant lives in is called a habitat. There are many different types of habitats that make a home for plants.

Some plants grow in the hot, dry desert. The desert is a habitat. These plants do not need as much water as other types of plants. Some plants grow in forests or caves that get very little sunlight. This is a special home just made for these types of plants.
