Do you start seeds with light?
actually a bean seed will grow faster in the dark. it grows faster because of its conditions, it has to grow higher to reach any light. Although it may grow faster it has less colour and 'attractiveness' aha. it turns into a white, pale colour, with no leaves.
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 i…n the dark at all. but as a rule of thumb, most seeds prefer to germinate in the dark.

Soaking a seed too long can kill the embryo and prevent it fromgerminating. The seed can also rot if it is too wet for too long.
Most seeds are damaged by direct sun and the majority need moisture, warmth, and darkness to stimulate growth. A few species of seeds need light to aid germination, but not necessarily direct sun.
It is mostly the light's effect upon a plant pigment calledphytochrome within the seed. Light in the red wave length usuallypromotes germination, whereas blue light inhibits 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.
To start seeds indoors, try using CowPots or a similar bio-degradable starter pot. CowPots are made from cow manure, but they do not smell, and you can plant them directly into the ground.. Start seeds indoors in the spring, and transplant outside when there is no risk of frost.. you mean germinat…e?. place them on some cottonwool, water it but dont drown them, and place in a warm place tof a few days. make sure they dont dry up.

Very easy seeds to grow. Just mix some planting soil, clay (chemical-free cat litter) and a little sand. Stick the seeds in the dirt and water. I have 3 of them growing now.
Green plants respond to the stimulus of light. Most stems and leaves grow towards light. HINt: If you have never noticed a plant that has sat in a sunny window for to long always bends towards the light.
I am delighted to have your question as it lends credence to a recent book purchase of mine on seeds! "Cedar," unfortunately, is a common parlance given to three distinctly different genera of evergreen woody plants: "true" cedarsCedrus spp, arborvitae; Thuja spp, northern white cedar and western re…d cedar, depending on the species; and Juniperus spp, usually rocky mountain red cedar, which I believe is the one you are making reference to.. What you are seeing are the female "cones" or berries. Both those on the ground and on the trees can be grown. To substitute for bird digestive juices, take the pulpy berry and soak it in lye-enriched water solution for two days to soften the pulp. Then macerate the seeds and place on a screen for rinsing. The actual seeds are hard and will go undamaged for the most part. Dry the seeds completely.. Stratification of seed is necessary for 30 to 120 days at about 40 F. A vegetable crisper in the refrigerator works best for this. Plant outdoors this spring and hopefully something will come up! ( Full Answer )
Initially lighting began with fires built in or near dwelling and work areas, to allow for work and community interaction after nightfall and also to discourage predators. Torches of flaming twigs or other inflammable material quickly followed.. Later, animal fat and later still, beeswax, was emplo…yed to make a more permanent source of light: candles.. Much later, candles were put in sheltering lamps to keep them burning even in a wind. Oil lamps followed, working on similar principles as candle-lamps, and eventually the gaslight was invented.. Humphry Davy invented the electric light in 1800. Many other inventors grasped the idea and were quick to improve upon the idea.. By the late nineteenth/early twentieth centuries the electric light bulb was growing rapidly in popular use and completely changed the way people treated the hours of darkness..

Lightning is caused when clouds colide causing mass amounts of static electricity then searching for the highest earth point. hence why you dont live on hills hahahaha.
Technically speakng, every part does start from a seed. However, some plants can grow from part of another pre-existing plant, like a tuber. Tulips can be grown from their bulbs.

You might not have good results if you grow a pear tree from a seed. Many pears are grafted. They will take hardy, wild rootstock and graft a fairly weak branch to it. The pear will, then be fertilized by who-knows-what other pear and the seeds may produce a tree that bears poor quality fruit or the… tree may be weak.. If you want a good, strong, fruit bearing tree you get the best results by getting a young tree from a nursery.. If all you want to do is get the seeds to grow, you can plant them in a well-drained pot with potting soil. You should have sprouts in a couple weeks. ( Full Answer )
Germination is the time when a plant begins to grow. At that point,the plant is sometimes called a seedling.
Seeds don't need photosynthesis. In photosynthesis, sunlight is used by the plant to create various simple sugars. A seed has the nutrients it needs, including those simple sugars, built in.
no one can answer this!! you shall try to complete every area each time. in any area that you cant find some light seeds, try writing on youtube "prince of persia,-the area you are stuck", and you'll probably find in a video what you need!! hope i helped!!
well most people think seeds have to grow in the light but seeds can grow in the dark better than in the light. :D
Pumpkin seeds definetely grow alot better during the day. This is because they need alot of sunligh, photosynthesis and water. They also grow much faster in the day then at night.. Hope this helps. From: Daren
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.
Seeds don't need light to germinate as they are underground. they only need light once their leaves start sprouting.
Absolutely! Sunlight is essential for plants to grow. . there is a big difference between what a plant needs to grow and what a seed needs to germinate. most seeds require darkness to germinate, some are light inhibited and a few require light to germinate- most notable of these is lettuce.
You plant the seed in some fertile soil and water it every day- not too much, though.
Bonfire begonia plants are usually started from cuttings. They are however a protected variety so you can not sell the cuttings.
Grand Rapids variety of lettuce seeds do not germinate in darkness.They will, however, be stimulated to germination by red light(wavelength about 660 nanometers).
The whole coconut is the seed so depending on the coconut's size it could be pretty heavy.
I did one year with bell pepper seeds and the produce tasted fine. What I did was I dried the seed thoroughly, and then I planted them and did everything normal, and it tasted fine, great on pizza!
Yes, the growing lights are mimicking the sun's UV rays, so transplanting a plant from inside to outside would not hurt it. If anything, it might even be good for it. Though, you can still regulate the amount of sunlight a plant receives with an in-door lighting system.
Most cereal comes from wheat, which is processed into cereal. In rice-based cereal, its either processed or puffed rice. So its either wheat or rice.
It is not too late to start seeds. June is usually the month that is too late.
Sunflowers seeds will sprout in full darkness, but in order for them to grow, they must have lots of light. Otherwise, the sprouts will die within a few days.
Well this quston is esy pipel ahhh seeds need water to begin to germinate. Just soak the packet and watch.
No, actually, the embryo is using a small amount of stored reserve even when the seed is dry, dormant and sitting in a packet on the shelf. That's part of the reason why dry seeds eventually die if they're kept long enough. But you're right.. when the seed begins to germinate, then the increase i…n metabolism over what it was in the dry state is huge.. Source(s): . old biologist. ( Full Answer )

Many seeds germinate in the darkness, because when seeds are planted, they are planted in the darkness of the soil, then push up the seedlings towards the light above the soil.
to grow indoors try using high pressure sodium flood lights ( you can get them at home depot)
if the rest of the apple is not soft or bruised, it is fine. Just don't eat the seed. You could plant the seed and have an apple tree, but if you don't have good nutrients in your soil or the weather isn't right u may end up with a crab apple tree. Apples are pretty tough though, they grow all over …Maine and it gets really cold here :) ( Full Answer )
nope, just bury it where the water wen it rains will get down far enough to get to it, and plenty of sunshine, like put it in a spot where the sun shines the most, and that's it.
My petunia seeds need light and warmth to germinate. My lobelia seeds need light and cold to germinate. What does my delphinium seeds need?
some seeds require light for germination, while others do not. seed would prefer to germinate on or in the osil, but can also germinate if a suitable alternative media is provided - think of the experiment you do in school with beans and wet tissue paper
Put the seeds in a zip lock bag with wet paper towls and put them by light till they start growin roots.
By watering it. Heat also helps germination, but that's not usually something you can provide yourself; just try to use grass seed when you're expecting warm weather.
First, the Venus Flytrap grows white little flowers in Spring (April-May) then, once the little flower opens there are exposed seeds. Get these seeds and plant them again. In the wilderness they fall down.
It depends on the seed. Some seeds require complete darkness, some require semi-darkness, and others require light.
First of all, the seed imbibes water and gets its enzymes activated. Active metabolism in the seed is resumed and cell division starts in the radicle and plumule. The radicle comes out of the micropyle first followed by the plumule. Thus sprouting in the seed takes place.
Starting something growing inside can be a good idea if the weather is not favorable. However, you should make sure to re-pot it before it dies, or stops growing due to lack of room.
Empress of India Nasturtium flower is grown from seed. Epazote is a herb that is grown from seed.
