The Amazing World of Plant Germ Cells
A seed is basically an unformed plant enclosed inside an outer protective covering. The development of that seed is however a crucial part of that process of germination in seedlings, which includes the angiosperm and gymnosperm plants. Seeds can be either male (anna) or female (sativa). In most cases, the male seedling will be smaller in size and darker in colour, while the female seedling is larger in size and lighter in colour.
Male plant seeds have their own set of chromosomes, which carry instructions for the production of reproductive cells in the plant. When those reproductive cells reach maturity they divide into spores that float through the air. Spores then land on a suitable host plant, where they begin to reproduce themselves. The process of generation of a new generation begins again. The new generation’s nucleus contains instructions for the production of more seeds.
Female plants reproduce differently from males. In females, there is a gymnosperm which carries one single set of chromosomes – these chromosomes are used to produce seeds, rather than the rest of the population which uses the female chromosomes. This is why some species of plants are also the only ones that can produce both types of seeds. The gymnosperm must land on the correct host plant in order to produce fertile seeds. It will then fertilize that plant before dying off.
Female plants reproduce via an ovary that is present near the end of an egg in the body of an adult. The ovary’s job is to store up material which becomes the eventual egg of a new plant. The eggs are released from the ovary near the end of ovulation. After ovulation the ovule slowly develops until it fills with saponin and releases its pollen.
The two parts of a new follicle differ slightly. The ovary has a capsule that is filled with fluid (semiscel) which is filled with a variety of sugars and other chemicals needed to create the seeds. The corpus cavernosa bulges slightly out into the lateral cavity of an egg. This bulge contains a network of channels (ovaries), which form the ovarian cavity. The corpus cavernosa contains the actual follicles (testicles). Once an egg is released, all the components of that egg begin to push against each other and the two capsules fill with fluids (semiscel) which is then released into the follicle.
Seeds are literally seeds – you could say they’re small diamonds in a rough matrix. Each capsule contains about 10 seeds. When the two capsules are released, they combine and grow together until they are fully developed into an embryo. The number of seeds can be different depending on what species of plant they came from. However, all plants reproduce in this way. There are about 2021 different species of plants that produce seeds – about five percent of the entire Earth’s vegetation!
Flowering plants make use of seed tapes to create the flower. Seed tapes are thin, hollow strips of tissue paper, but they are also very strong and can hold up to tens of thousands of flowers. Seed tapes can be made from a wide variety of materials, including, paper, plastics, feathers and other tissues. Seed tapes can even be customized with different colors, shapes and textures – that’s right, flowers have been decorated with seed tapes! The beauty of making flower seed tapers is that the tissue paper can actually be used as a sort of flower design itself, complete with leaves, petals and even petals!
Fertilization is completed with sperm through vaginal intercourse or cervical mucus. In most cases, a woman must use her finger to insert a finger-sized piece of sterile human cervical mucus into her vagina before she gets into a relationship with someone new. The introduction of sperm into an egg is considered to be the first step in fertilization, which occurs as soon as the egg meets the gonads. The use of sperm and the associated fluids constitute the process by which new life organisms called embryos are formed, including all the plants, animals and humans on this planet.
