replacement of nouns gender and numbrer issue

Consider "Ses plantes sont plus belles que les notres."

The "les notres" replaces the plural noun "plantes" which is feminine; so why is the " les notres masculine? What am I missing here?  Would appreciate imput.

There is no difference between masculine and feminine plurals, so "les nôtres" is also the feminine.
