GERMINATION is when a ROOT and a SHOOT begin to grow out from the SEED . This is the beginning of a new plant !! i
SEEDS have different parts : SEED COAT (which covers the seed) and the HILUM (where the seeds was attached to the mother plant)
After germination, the first root emerges (RADICLE), the seed coat softens and splits and the COTYLEDONS (or seed leaves which contain food for the new seedling) begin to expand.
CONDITIONS NEEDED FOR SEED GERMINATION SEEDS remain dormant or inactive until CONDITIONS are RIGHT for GERMINATION.
All SEEDS need WATER, OXYGEN and proper TEMPERATURE in order to GERMINATE.
Some SEEDS require proper LIGHT also. SOME germinate better in FULL LIGHT while others require DARKNESS to germinate.
