The Plantae kingdom is the biological kingdom for plants. All organisms in the Plantae kingdom make their own food via photosynthesis and are made out of many cells; they do not rely on other living organisms for nutrition. Fungi were originally under the Plantae kingdom, but later formed their own kingdom because they absorb food out of decaying material.
