Lab activity 1: Factors Affecting Seed Germination Introduction: Seed germination is a process that induces the embryonic stage of the seed to mature and give rise to plants that are seen outdoors today. The germination of the seed is a process in which the cells inside the seed increase in size, forcefully pushing out of the seed to become roots and shoots to grow and push. Seed germination and seedling growth: The seeds were surface sterilized with 0. The seeds of Raphanus and Cucumber were spread on sterile filter paper in each petridish and soaked in aqueous root exudates of each weeds. Each weeds had three replicates with equal quantity of seeds in petridishes.
