Hello! are anthuriums considered as angiosperms?
Do fungi have photosynthesis?

fungi should be hetero not atuotropic...
i rmb they don't hv chloroplast or photosynthetic pigment, but they absorb others nutrients via external digestion...

I concur with reptile.
As for fungi being photosynthetic I think not because by definiton the kingdom fungi is a saprophyte. Meaning that they obtain energy and nutrients from dead and organic matter.

The deffinition of kingdom fungi is not saprophyte(and it's not a deffinition either, it is more of a characteristic). It is heterotroph. They can me either saprophyte, parasites or can form symbiosis as lichens or michorizea

I hope I am allowed to ask that question...

I am wondering why you are not certain weather Anthurium sp. is angio- or gymnosperm? I mean what makes you think it might be a gymnosperm? For example when I was in secondary school I thought that every plant that has cones or similar structures are gymnosperms :oops: .
I think that answering such questions may dissipate lots of misunderstandings.
