2: Germination is a process that takes time and patience. There are three things plants need in order to germinate: *Right Temperature *Water source *Light Correct temperature is needed for growth, water is needed in order for the seed to swell and crack the seed coat. Lighting is a very important staple in germination, whether it may be sunlight or artificial light.
3: radical | hypocotyle | seed coat | endosperm
4: Growth Explained (Shoot & Root) | The meristem is the tissue in most plants consisting of undifferentiated cells (meristematic cells), found in zones of the plant where growth can take place. This is why plants grow up and not out.
5: Secondary growth in plants is an increase in diameter of roots, stems, and branches. | Primary growth is growth in length and occurs in all vascular plants. | .
6: April Showers Bring May Flowers | Internode | Internode | Young Plant Structure and Function | Bud: | Terminal Bud: | Leaf: | Node: | Cotyledon: | Structure of fast plants above soil | Increases the length of the plant. | Stores various food material, and helps in photosynthesis and transpiration. | Hold buds which grow into one or more leaves. | Distances one node from another. | Distances one node from another. | : | Place where flowers sprout. | Absorb food from the endosperm.
7: The structure of fast plants underground | Coleoptile: | Lateral Root : | Root Hairs: | Primary Root: | Cuticle: | Ground Tissue | Vascular Tissue | Dermal Tissue: | Create a large surface area, and absorb most of their water and nutrients. | Anchor the plant securely into the soil. | Absorb water, anchor plant in ground, and stores nutrients. | Protective sheath covering the emerging shoot. | Outer protective covering. | Protect the plant from injury and water loss.

10: It's a beautiful day, don't let it get away. The LIfe of a fast plant. | Life Cycle Diagrammed And Explained. | Days 9-13 Around day 9 the plant begins to turn to reproduction, shifting from stem and leaf growth to flower development. Flower buds grow from the shoot meristem (growth tip). | Day 14-17 Flowers bloom! If pollen is passed from flower-to-flower, pollination occurs. Pollen that lands on the tip of another flower's pistil grows a tube down into the pistil, where the eggs are housed. Sperm (from inside the pollen) then move down the tube until they reach the eggs and fertilize them. This is where bee sticks come into play. | Day 18-20 Fertalized eggs inside the plant's pistils grow and develop to become the embryos of new seeds. The outside of the pistil swells and becomes the seed pod (or fruit) that encases several seeds. | Days 21-40 Flower petals slowly wilt and fall off and seed pods Inside each seed is a tiny embryo, waiting for water and warmth so it can germinate into a new plant, and another life cycle can begin. After the seeds have dried out completely, they are ready to be planted or stored.
11: Day 0 Each seed contains a tiny, new plant, called an embryo. The outside of the seed is called the seed coat. A seed can remain quiescent (sleeping) for years, as long as it stays dry and cool. Days 1-2 A day or two after planting and watering, the tiny seed germinates. During germination, the seed takes up water and swells until its seed coat cracks. | Day 3 The hypocotyl (stem) pushes through the soil, pulling the cotyledons (seed leaves) along with it. No longer needed, the seed coat drops from the cotyledons to the soil. | Day 4 Above ground, the hypocotyl elongates as the plant reaches upward for light. Underground, the roots grow downward and anchor the seedling in the soil. | Days 5-8 Above ground, the true leaves, stems grow and develop from a point at the very top of the plant, called the shoot meristem (growth tip). Underground root hairs grow to absorb water and nutrients from the surrounding soil and bring them to the rest of the plant.
12: planting | 1.) we put the wick in the canister 2.) then we fill it half full with soil and dropped two fertilizer pellets in it 3.) after that we filled again almost to the top and drop one or two seeds in the canister. 4.) then filled the rest with dirt and watered from the top
