  • Germination: – Germination is when the seed starts to grow. The seed cracks tiny roots and shoots appear and grow into a new plant.
  • Pollination: – Pollination is the process of getting pollen from the stamen to the carpel. The carpel contains the eggs and the stamen contains pollen grains.
  • Fertilization and Seed Production: – When the pollen grains join with the egg, it is called fertilization. The fertilized egg becomes a seed. The flower dies and leaves behind a fruit with seeds. These seeds will grow into new plants.
  • Seed Dispersal: – The fruits and seeds are carried away from the parent plant to stop overcrowding. The wind also carries the seed away. Animals disperse the seeds when they eat the fruit.
