What would you like to do?
yes it does. the less light the seed has will either make the seed take longer to germinate or not germinate at all. Answer it really depends on the type of seed. some seeds like watermelon and tomato coulnd care less about how much light they get while others like lettuce would not germinate in the dark at all. but as a rule of thumb, most seeds prefer to germinate in the dark.

It is mostly the light's effect upon a plant pigment called phytochrome within the seed. Light in the red wave length usually promotes germination, whereas blue light inhi…bits it.
Light doesn't really affect seed germination because during seed germination the seed mostly needs water so the seed can break out of the seed coat and also the water triggers… metabolic changes in the embryo which enables the seed to grow.
If there is to much oxygen in the roots of a plant the plant will die because of to much oxygen.
Seed germination is significantly affected by temperature. When it is cool, seeds are slower to germinate than when it is warm. If conditions are too cool or too hot, seed…s won't germinate at all.
nm...i think yes....cuz u dat in access amount of water, a plant DOESN'T GROW! so i think its the same here... hope this helps :)
If the amount of water is to great around the bean seed it will die and not be able to germinate.
THe sugar dries out the roots and suffocates the plant becaus it can't take in water
Physiologically seeds do not need light to germinate as they store enough food reserves in their cotyledons (or cotyledon if a monocotyledonous plant). However, so seeds need… to be exposed to light to overcome dormancy, whereas others require to be covered for germination. Normally extremely small seed are not covered when germinating them.
It dies. It only needs light after it has germinated. Most seeds prefer to germinate in the dark.
Very much so. Without at least a little moisture, there are no seeds I'm aware of which will germinate.
Moisture, soil pH, soil nutrients, scarification, warmth from the sun that heats up the soil, etc.
yes. Some seeds can only germinate after the outside of the seed has been attacked by bacteria or molds. In other cases the mold destroys the seed or the young seedling.

Heat, moisture, and airflow. Some seeds also need light to germinate.
