In Indonesia there are countries plant species diversity. Circumstances such as climate and soil strongly supports the survival of various plant species. Therefore Indonesian citizen is obliged to be grateful for God's grace.

Growth is the increase in the number of cells in an organism. Growth can not be returned (irreversible). Meanwhile, the development of a process to reach maturity functions of an organism. Although different in terms of understanding, but these two processes to run simultaneously or at the same time and are interrelated. The difference lies in the quantitative and qualitative factors. Growth can be measured quantitatively as easily observed, ie changes in the number and size occurred. Conversely, development can only be expressed qualitatively as functional changes occur in the body of an organism that can not be observed.

[...] The embryo has three important parts: a. Embryonic stem the candidate stems and leaves b. The roots of the prospective embryonic root c. Cotyledons namely food reserves Plant growth can be measured with an instrument called auksanometer. Area root and stem growth based on its activity is divided into 3 areas: a. Regional division cells in this area actively dividing (meristematic) b. Behind the elongation region cleavage area c. Regional differentiation of the rearmost part of the growth area. Cells differentiate to form the actual root and young leaves and shoots lateral branches that will be. [...]

[...] Either growth or development is irreversible. When we plant the seeds of plants, it can be observed that from day to day changes in height. Qualitatively, visible form of the initial (seed) into a form that is so simple that a complete plant. In plants that are growing, reflecting the formation of new organs. For example, the more leaves, the roots become longer and multiply. Looking at the direction of growth, the plants grow two main directions: - Root down (Heading to Earth) - Leaves (and stems) to the top In general, the growth and developments in plant begins to stage the embryo is a fertilized female to male sex cells.
