The hypocotyl is a part of a cannabis plant's anatomy. It refers to the section of the stem that connects the embryonic root (radicle) and the embryonic shoot (plumule). During the germination process, the hypocotyl emerges from the seed and grows upward, pushing the cotyledons (seed leaves) above the soil surface. It plays a vital role in providing support and nutrients to the developing seedling until it can establish a root system and begin photosynthesis. Understanding the structure and function of the hypocotyl is important for successful cannabis cultivation, as it ensures proper seedling growth and establishment.
