How are seeds germinated without soil?

Recommended Posts

Seeds don't have to have soil to germinate, a good example of this is a dicotyledonous seed such as as the broad bean. It only needs water to kick start the germination process which triggers the production of the plant hormone Gibberillin. Leading to the hydrolysis of starchy subjects in the seed such as starch down to maltose and eventually glucose for plant growth. Hope this helps.
