Seeds are living, but are "dormant" until they
are in certain conditions where they can grow. You
can tell if your seeds are healthy enough to
germinate, or grow, or not. It is actually pretty
simple! Healthy seeds (depending on size it's
easier to tell) may have a shiny coating, feel
firm, and some may have some healthy spots on
them. If your seeds are brittle and easily
breakable then they mostly probably are not
healthy enough to grow plants. The color also
matter; they should grey-green, grey-brown, grey,
brown, or green. And another way to check is to
just plant a couple!
What a great scientific question! Since seeds
are a baby plant, you would need sunlight, a
little bit of water, and some soil. You could
then put the seeds in a little bit of soil, water
them, and put them in the sun. Seeds sometimes
look like they are no longer alive. They are made
this way so that they have a better chance of
surviving and creating new plants.
