Does the amount of light a seed is exposed to affect seed germination?
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 in the dark at all. but as a rule of thumb, most seeds prefer to germinate in the dark.

I THINK IT TRUE BECAUSE THEY HELP IT SPOURT AND GROW
Seed of various plants can be broadly divided into two groups.Those which germinate in autumn and winter, and those whichgerminate in spring and summer. Seed which normally ge…rminates inspring and summer requires relatively warm germination temperatures(22 - 24 degrees Centigrade), while winter germinating seedrequires temperatures between 18 and 20 degrees Centigrade. Anumber of seed types also have something called dormancy, thisprevents seed which is dispersed at the end of the growing seasonfrom germinating immediately. For example, a plant flowers andproduces seed in Summer. The seed is dispersed and drops to theground. The seed may require a period of extreme cold or chillingbefore it will germinate. This prevents the seed from germinatingand the the young plant being killed by low winter temperatures.The reverse is true of Winter seed.
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 i…t.
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.
If there is to much oxygen in the roots of a plant the plant will die because of to much oxygen.
Seed germination is significantly affected by temperature. When itis cool, seeds are slower to germinate than when it is warm. Ifconditions are too cool or too hot, seeds won'…t germinate at all.
nm...i think yes....cuz u dat in access amount of water, a plant DOESN'T GROW! so i think its the same here... hope this helps :)
If the amount of water is to great around the bean seed it will die and not be able to germinate.
THe sugar dries out the roots and suffocates the plant becaus it can't take in water
pH levels have nothing to do with seed germination. All seeds need to germinate are moisture and warmth. However after the seed has germinated the level of pH wil be a factor …for the growth of the plant.
Very much so. Without at least a little moisture, there are no seeds I'm aware of which will germinate.
Moisture, soil pH, soil nutrients, scarification, warmth from the sun that heats up the soil, etc.
yes. Some seeds can only germinate after the outside of the seed has been attacked by bacteria or molds. In other cases the mold destroys the seed or the young seedling.
Heat, moisture, and airflow. Some seeds also need light to germinate.
