In plant physiology, theepicotylis the embryonic shoot above the cotyledons. In most plants theepicotylwill eventually develop into the leaves of the plant. In dicots, the hypocotyl is what appears to be the base stem under the spent withered cotyledons, and the shoot just above that is theepicotyl.
