In some plants the gametophyte is the dominant phase and is independent one. Here the female sex organ after fertilization transforms to the sporophyte so we can say that the sporophyte is actually attached to the female gametophyte. So the sporophyte is always attached to the gametophyte and has to dependent upon the gametophyte for its nutrition.
