Arabidopsis germination

Arabidopsis thaliana babies "hatching" from seeds - different developmental stages observed about two days after the first signs of germination of the first seeds.


These seeds were surface-sterilized and germinated on agar plates. The pictures were taken with the SuperMacro setting on the camera and the lens resting right on top of the lid of the petridish (I didn't want to open the plates as we're trying to grow these under sterile conditions).
