The figures correspond to the stages of growth and development of moss, turning it into an adult plant. Under the numbers 7, 8 and 9, we see the fertilization process, when the male shoots or plants, and the moss can be both dioecious and monoecious, appear sperm cells that fertilize female sex cells.
