    There would be no Photosenthesis. Pollenation hence survival

    The true plants would die.  (And... so would we...) If geo-thermal energy remained, there would be some bacteria, and some creatures living off that bacteria that would survive for a while - until the oceans froze solid.

    They'd die.

    Plants produce their own food through a process called photosynthesis. As the name suggests (photo-), sunlight is essential to it.

    They would die (except for mushrooms).

    Somewhere around 98% of plant on the planet would die rather quickly.  Many others have evolved enough to survive off from unnatural sources of light, or through nutrients collected by other means.  Although not a plant, the great benefactors would be fungi, as they'd feast well on the decay while flourishing in the lack of light.  Fungi are fantastic survivors.
