The Chandogya Upansihada says that there are three possible biological origins of life.
This is mentioned in the Shloka 6.3.1:
तेषां खल्वेषां भूतानां त्रीण्येव बीजानी भवन्त्याण्डजं जीवजमुद्भिज्जमिति ।। ६ । ३ । १ ।।
Translation of the Shloka, as found in Chandogya Upanishad - Translated by Ganganath Jha:
Verily, of these Beings there are only three origins - Born from Egg, Born from Living Being, and Born from Roots.
The word Beejam can refer to roots, seeds, grains etc., essentially talking about the plant kingdom.
