Life Cycle of a Plant

A green flowering plant goes through several stages of plant growth to become mature. From a seed, to seedling, to flowering plant to fruit, here are the plant stages.


The life cycle of a plant starts with the seed. They are harvested from a mature plan and then they are planted in the soil.

Once a seed is planted in the soil, and gets plenty of water, air and sunlight it will start to germinate. The hard shell of the seed will soften and split. Roots will begin to grow downward and a shoot will start to grow upwards.


Once the shoot grows through the soil it is called a seedling. Leaves will start to grow and the stem will grow taller and taller.

Flowering Plant

After a time the plant is fully mature and flowers will grow. Once the flower has been fertilized by pollinators, the seed pods begin to develop.


The seed pods that develop are the fruit of the plant. These can be harvested for food or saved for the next season of planting where the life cycle starts all over again.
