only germinate after extreme temperatures, such as after a fire in the grasslands. The seed sends a shoot towards the surface, where it will grow leaves to harvest energy from the sun. In this lesson, we'll go over the steps of germination, and what factors influence how seeds germinate. Some seeds germinate when it is cold, such as plants in northern environments.
When these factors occur, oxidation happens. As the fertilized ovaries develop, a surplus of carbohydrates and proteins are stored inside the seed. First, environmental conditions must trigger the seed to grow. When water is plentiful, the seed fills with water in a process called imbibition. The seeds inside the fruits are designed to spread throughout the environment and grow into new plants in a process called seed germination. Influencing Factors, several factors influence if, and how, seeds germinate. The shoots of the plant grow towards light. Check out this indoor grow system.
