The precursors of nanomaterials can be transformed into nanomaterials in plants. This chapter introduces plants as hosts for nanomaterial synthesis. Although the synthesis of nanomaterials by this method cannot be obtained in large quantities, the existence of nanomaterials in plants will have a certain impact on the growth of plants. This technique may not be useful in the synthesis of nanomaterials, but it has potential applications in agriculture.
