Sprouting Seeds and Grains

Seeds and grains (the seeds of grain plants) are specially designed to survive unchanged in nature until they land in a situation just ripe for starting a new version of whatever plant they come from. The vital nutrients for growth stay encased in a fairly impermeable shell until the seed arrives in a place both moist and slightly acidic, optimal growing conditions. Over a period of hours or days the shell is gently softened and opened and the activated nutrients enable the seed to grow.
