You may know that plants have a lifecycle—they grow, reproduce, and die. But did you know that each stage of this cycle is crucial to the survival of the entire plant world? Let’s go through each phase.
First, we’ll start with germination. This process involves the seed breaking open and beginning to grow once it gets enough water and sunlight. Once a seed has sprouted from its shell (or “fruit”), it quickly grows into a tiny plant called a seedling that looks very different from its original form as an embryo within its fruit-like shell.
Next comes flowering! Flowering occurs when certain conditions are met: for example, if there’s plenty of water available for roots to absorb or there isn’t enough light for leaves to photosynthesize properly (and thus generate energy). Flowers rely on pollinators like insects or birds to move pollen from male parts called stamen onto female parts called pistils; here’s why those flowers need so much help getting their pollen spread around: they only have one chance per year!
Finally comes fruit production—the final stage before death occurs because there aren’t any more seeds left inside their bodies after their reproductive organs fill up with seeds during flowering season earlier in summertime.”
