Grow a Garden in a Glove

Step 6 of 6: What's happening?

Key Terms Defined

The stage of growth when a plant root sprouts from the outer seed covering

Each seed contains a baby plant that will start to grow under the right conditions. All a seed needs to begin growing is warmth and water. The first stage in seed growth is called germination, which is when the tiny root emerges from the outer seed covering. Once the seed starts sprouting, it needs soil, room for the roots to grow, sunlight and water.
