The coleoptile is easily visible 3 days after seeds were placed in magenta boxes.

 The seedlings in the jars on the left and in the middle are 4 days old; the seedlings in the jar on the right are 3 days old.

This picture shows the seedling growth 7 days later. This photo shows that although a fungus has begun to grow, the seedlings are thriving.  However, in some cases contamination does inhibit or prevent successful germination of the seed.

 Continue to next page to see how the seedlings are transplanted.
