The occurrence of plant blindness among students, then the plant literacy movement must be carried out intensively through learning in schools by applying phenetic. This study used a pre-experimental design pre-test and post-tests group. Pre-test about system thinking which is part of 21st century skills of critical thinking and problem solving regarding seed plants as aspects of 21st century plant literacy in high school students of class X MIPA in Bandung, conducted before phenetic learning. During learning, students are assigned to begin by identifying and selecting the characters of each taxon until reconstructing the phenogram. After phenetic learning, a post test was conducted. The results showed that there was an increase in 21st century plant literacy as much as 0.61 which included moderate categories and students could positively accept phenetic learning. Thus in addition to being a curriculum demand, phenetic also has the potential as a means to improve 21st century student plant literacy, but only a few aspects of system thinking can be developed. Further improvement is needed in phenetic learning, especially in selecting taxon and determining its characteristics.
