Germination

Germination
The birth of a plant is through the seed. We took 20 seeds into a jar and moistened it to begin the germination process.

The seeds were kept in the jar sealed for three days.When the jar was opened we saw tiny white roots peeping out of the seed pod. The growth has been good. However not all the 20 seeds sprouted roots.

Now we have picked a small tube in which the second stage of growth will take place. This is shown in the image. This tube can be found with the nearest florist. This tube is used with the Orchid flower stem. The tube is filled with moistened coconut husk. This helps in supporting the plant, provide oxygen to the roots and retain moisture.
