Why a plant needs light and a seeds doesn't?

Seeds have a special food reserve called endosperm that gives them enough energy to produce a sprout that will reach light so that it can produce food and continue growing. That's why seeds always manage to grow upwards towards the light no matter how you place them in the ground. By the time a seed's sprout breaks ground, the endosperm has almost all been absorbed.

What do you think would happen if you put the containers with seeds in a dark closet?

If there is water available to them, the seeds will eventually sprout (assuming that the seeds were viable to begin with). After they have sprouted, they will need sunlight and nutrients to continue growing, however. If there is no water available to the seeds, they will remain dormant, sometimes for many years, until water becomes available to initiate the sprouting process. most seeds in a dark closet will sprout because most seeds don't need sunlight to sprout. But when the sprouts start to grow, they don't have enough energy stored in the seed to do much more than sprout and will die if not moved into the light.</P> There is a traditional science experiment where a bean is planted in a dark box and baffles are placed in the box and a hole put in one end. The bean will grow and eventually will reach the light by growing around the baffles. This is because a bean seed contains enough stored material to support this growth.
