The first part of the life cycle of a plant is the seed. Seeds are usually planted in soil where they receive water, sunlight and carbon dioxide. This then starts to help the seed grow.
The second part of the life cycle of the plant is to germinate. This means to grow or sprout. When the seed has begun to germinate you will see the embryo inside the seed will begin to push out through the seed coat.
The third part of the life cycle is the roots and leaves stage. In this stage the embryo begins to grow roots and pushes downward into the ground. The top half will grow leaves and push through the soil to reach the surface of the ground.
Next is the seedling stage. This means that the plant is a baby plant or a seedling. This is when the leaves use gas ,which is carbon dioxide , that is found in the air to make their own food. Inside the leaves are cells that breath in the gas and turn it into sugar to through a process called photosynthesis.
Next the seedling will grow into a young plant and then into a young plant. These plants are bigger than the seedling with more leaves. They still use sunlight,water, and carbon dioxide to continue to grow.
Over time , the plant will grow into an mature/adult plant. This means that the plant is fully grown and is now old enough to reproduce. The the plant cycle starts all over again.
