Some people are under the impression that seeds are alive. But what does it mean for a seed to be alive? This is a question that many people ask themselves, but there are two specific definitions: dormant and alive. When a seed germinates, it becomes dormant until it receives enough water, light and nutrients to grow into an adult plant. A dead seed will not grow no matter how much of these things you provide them with. So if your plants have been growing well in the past few months, then they are most likely not dormant!
There are two specific definitions: dormant and alive. When a seed germinates, it becomes dormant until it receives enough water, light and nutrients to grow into an adult plant. A dead seed will never grow no matter how much of these things you provide them with. If your plants have been growing well in the past few months, then they are most likely not dormant!
plants that are still alive but stop producing flowers and leaves or die off at some point during winter are considered dormant. – a seed is inactive because it has to wait until conditions for germination become favorable before starting the process of growth again. A dead seed will never grow no matter how much water, light or nutrients you provide them with. So if your plant has stopped flowering and/or died back over the last couple months, then it’s probably dormant rather than dead as long as there was plenty of rain this summer (assuming you’re referring to an annual).
when a plant stops photosynthesis completely due to cold weather, lack of sunlight, or other circumstances outside its control, it dies. Dormancy is a plant’s natural response to bad conditions and prevents them from dying off completely when they are still healthy enough to make more growth in the future if given the right conditions.
Because dormant plants can still grow into new green shoots come spring (which will bloom as well), you don’t need to cut them back before winter. – on the other hand, dead plants cannot revive themselves no matter what time of year it is so any flowers left should be removed by clipping below where there are leaves attached during late summer for best results. – you may not even know your plant has died until its completely browned over but just keep an eye out for any signs of new growth which are the first sign that it’s coming back alive.
Dormant plants do not require water or food since they are in a form of hibernation and can return to life if watered properly with time. – However, dead plants cannot come back from being brown so you should cut them all off at soil level before winter comes along to prevent overwintering bugs like slugs who would love to eat your dried up plant remains for dinner.
As we’ve seen, dormancy is a natural process used by many different types of living things including some people! That means seeds are technically still alive unless something outside their control happens such as dying due to drought or freezing temperatures making it impossible for them to survive.
When the seed starts showing signs that it’s coming back alive, it’s called germination.
Germinating plants are a sign of life, know what that means? Bacteria can’t do it so even though they feed off living things and some people think bacteria are alive, the truth is they’re not since there are no signs of life in them. – So if you found an inactive seed like say a maple tree seed in your backyard, then all you need to do is water it for a little bit every day over time until new leaves start appearing on the top of its stem which will mean this dormant plant has finally come back to life!
Are seeds alive?
It depends on what you call being alive. If a plant is dormant, it means that the seed wasn’t able to grow into anything due to something like drought or freezing temperatures and so they needed help in order for them to come back. – So if there are signs of life such as bacteria (they can’t germinate), then technically this would not be considered living because everything else we know about needs water and sunlight just like plants do. Plus, when your seed starts showing new leaves from its stem, all you need to do is keep watering it everyday until these leaves start appearing!
