Why cryptogams are said to have hidden reproductive organs?

AcademicBiologyNCERTClass 9

Cryptogams are said to have hidden reproductive organs because these plants do not produce seeds and flowers. Flowers are known as the reproductive organ of plant and it is absent in cryptogams. They are non-seed-bearing plants. Cryptogams are plants that reproduce through spores (as flowers or seeds are absent).
