Sarracenia seedlings

After emergence of a radicle, which becomes the primary root, the hypocotyl is the next part of the seedling that protrudes from the seed. The sharply bent hypocotyl lifts the seeds above the soil. The cotyledons are 1 cm long. The third leaf - epicotyledonary leaf - arises between the cotyledons.
