Think of it like this: in a plant the surface cells have chloroplasts. These cells have the job of producing glucose for the plant. They only need energy for sustaining their life, becuase photosynthesis is self-sustaining. On the other hand, other cells in the plant have other jobs: they produce substances for secretion, need energy for diferentiation, etc. So green cells in the plant are the producers, and other cells are consumers. The consumers need more mithocondria in order to use the energy
This si the only thing i can think of...

mithrilhack,
Now, i'm in confuse because some books said fungi is plant and i also read some books and other internet materials said not a plant. :?
Poison,
I agree with u, that not all the plant have chloroplasts or chromoplasts. Then, it should be plant which don't have chloroplasts or chromoplasts, will be more in mitocondrion to supply the insufficient energy by consuming other organic substance from plant and animal.

Fungi and Plants are separate kingdoms, in the domain Eucaryota.
