nucleus are for cells. plants themselves dont have a nucleus, but the cells that make them up do. a plant doesnt need a nucleus. tecnicly speeking, you cant prove a negative, so its hard to answer your question. if you had a hypothisis of why a plant should have a nucleus, that would be good to put up as a question, but its tough to answer your question as is. Plants have multiple cells, and the cells have nuclei. (Nuclei is plural for nucleus).
