What is the difference between seedling and sapling?
A sapling is a young plant especially with slender trunk/stem. A sprout is the part of a plant which has just begun to grow. A seedling is a young plant especially grown from a seed rather than from grafting or cutting.
What comes after a seedling?
For humans, the progression is infant, toddler, adolescent, young adult, middle aged adult, and senior citizen, while plants go from seed to sprout, then through vegetative, budding, flowering and ripening stages.
How long does it take for seedlings to sprout?
The warmer the environment, the faster the germination. The best average temperature to grow your plants is 18 to 24’C (64 to 75’F). Usually it takes 1 to 2 weeks to germinate. Some plants such as mini tomato, chili pepper and rosemary may take up to 3 weeks.
What happens before a pumpkin sprout grows into a vine?
When the bees land on female flowers, some of the pollen comes off. The fuzzy green ball at the end of the flower begins to grow into a pumpkin. The vines, tendrils, and leaves of the plant grow bigger all summer. As the pumpkins grow bigger, seeds and pulp form inside.
