Signs of a root

A few days after the initial signs of germination, the root should be forming. The next couple of pictures shows what you can expect to see during this phase. The Araucaria Araucana root is extremely sensitive, and there is a risk that the plant will suffer as a result of exposure to the open. However in the name of documenting the life of these seeds I will take my chances.

The root is developing

Here is another example of a healthy looking root:

Another early root

Close up - only a few days old

 

As you will see the colour of the root is still predominantly white. Very shortly this will change, and the foundation for the trunk of the tree will soon emerge. The next blog entry will look at how the seeds develop after another two weeks of growth.
