Can you get abs by only doing planks

Hey guys i'm new to the forum and new to working out in general. I'm currently 15 years old and I don't have access to a gym so I was wondering if I could just do planks at home with a proper diet to get abs. And if not what exercises can I also do without adding weights? Thanks.
