    When the conditions are correct, a seed will take in water and oxygen.  The embryo will then start to enlarge and eventually break through the seed coat.  A root will then emerge, and, then, finally the shoot, which brings with it the leaves and stem.  More information, and illustrations can be found here:

    Here are the steps:

    • Seed absorbs water and seed coat gets burst. It is the first sign of germination. There is an activation of enzymes, increase in respiration and plant cells get duplicated. A chain of chemical changes starts which leads to development of plant embryo.
    • Chemical energy stored in the form of starch is converted to sugar, which is used during germination process. Soon, embryo gets enlarged and seed coat burst opens.
    • Growing plant emerges out. Tip of root first emerges and helps to anchor the seed in place. It also allows embryo to absorb minerals and water from soil.
    • Some seeds require special treatment of temperature, light or moisture to start germination.
    • Steps of seed germination can be different in dicots and monocots.
